Recovery & Reintegration Training
82% of the 2,800 practitioners trained by Consulting Circles from 2008 to 2012 had no previous experience of mutual support groups or alternative abstinence based interventions.
Intermediate Group Work Skills Training
Increasingly, frontline health & social care practitioners are expected to deliver enhanced outcomes with fewer resources. Group work offers staff teams the opportunity to provide a range of treatment interventions efficiently and effectively. Our 2 x day intermediate group work training course is delivered by highly qualified facilitators who have direct experience of developing and implementing group work programmes across the health and social care field.
Experienced health & social care workers often say that one of the most draining things about their job is trying to motivate clients to make behaviour changes. Frequently, workers try to pass on their own enthusiasm and energy to a passive or resistant client only to find their own energies depleted without effecting significant or lasting changes in the client. Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a client centred, goal directed, guiding style of therapeutic communication to help people motivate themselves to change their behaviour.
Alcohol Screening & Brief Interventions Training
Consulting Circles provide 2 x day generic training for frontline practitioners to identify and recognise indicators of harmful alcohol use and motivational techniques to encourage clients to participate in primary screening.
