Code: SGC/19/669 Defensible Decision-Making

This 1-day workshop is for South Gloucestershire Council Adult Care practitioners ONLY. Its key purpose is to equip staff with the knowledge, skills and confidence to make judgements and clearly record the rationale for decisions that are robust, supported by the relevant evidence and defensible when scrutinised by others. Practitioners need to assess people’s needs and their desired outcomes and then make decisions that keep that person and their carers at the heart of the assessment and support planning process. In all aspects of their work they have to find ways to balance a number of competing pressures including arranging person-centred care and support that meets Care Act and Mental Capacity Act requirements, whilst also managing risk and safeguarding issues effectively, using the organisation’s recording policy and using resources effectively.

Code: SGC/19/747 Strengthening Resilience & Well Being (Burning Brightly not Burning Out) (EVENT FULL)

Well-being and resilience are developed in the context of both our internal sense of self and the external context we find ourselves in. When we work in jobs which involve us in engaging with people who are experiencing emotional and psychological trauma, this will inevitably have an impact on our own resilience and well-being. 

Developing well-being and resilience is more than just a set of tools or strategies. It is a holistic approach to life and work, based in our values and beliefs, which integrates daily practices to support ourselves in the challenging work we have chosen to do.

This workshop has been developed to provide a space for you to reflect and share with colleagues. In recent years an extensive evidence base has begun to emerge demonstrating the important beneficial effects on mental health of engaging with our natural environment. The venue for this workshop has been chosen specifically because of the proximity to one of the city’s beautiful green spaces. Except in the case of extremely bad weather part of this workshop will be conducted outdoors amongst the trees and green spaces of the Oldbury Court Estate.
