Code: SGC/21/0713 Being Person Centred within 3 Conversations

This training is for Internal social care staff (OT, OTA, SW, SWA), care managers and for attendees wishing to do more in-depth study of the origins of Person Centred practice and how this fits with the SGC 3Conversations model.


Content

• Discuss and share ideas and experiences of person-centred practice from our practice – how does it differ from other approaches?
• Engage with and discuss where these ideas originated and the philosophy behind them. We will look at social care and also education and the development of client centred counselling. Why have they been prevalent at different times?
• Become familiar with South Glos’ version of the 3 Conversations Approach and exchange ideas about it, and also how it can be used creatively to best support people in very different circumstances with different levels of need.
• Become familiar with a range of published person-centred thinking tools which can be used within the 3 conversations framework.
• Throughout the day we will identify personal attitudes, professional values and particular practice skills which support person-centred practice. What does it mean to ‘be’ person-centred?
• We will practice positive communication skills which are identified, including person-centred recording of ‘conversations’.

Code: SGC/21/0839 FCSG: Men’s Group

This support group will be led by Mike Ollive.

The Purpose for the support groups

We realise that fostering can be really difficult at times. Perhaps the only people who really understand it are other foster carers and so therefore we want to give you a place to meet up.

Currently these will be taking place virtually.

Although these will be informal meetings, each session will have a brief agenda, attendance list, and agreed group rules. This is to help those who don’t know anyone and feel awkward about coming along to a new meeting, to feel that they won’t be left alone on the side-lines.

Sometimes there will be speakers and topics as requested by the group, this will hopefully make it as relevant to your fostering as you like.

These sessions should be recorded on your Personal Development Plan (PDP).

Code: SGC/21/0564 Motivational Interviewing (Council Adult Care Staff only) (EVENT FULL)

THIS COURSE IS FOR SOUTH GLOS COUNCIL ADULT SOCIAL CARE STAFF ONLY.

This will be delivered via Zoom and hosted by Phil Harris (Training Exchange). You will be sent a Zoom invite nearer the time.

(Please note - following this initial 1-day training, half-day Motivational Interviewing: Refresh & Practice Development sessions are avilable to help practitioners further develop their skills - see the website for dates and details.)

Motivational interviewing is a leading approach to increase motivation and commitment to change. It was first developed in the alcohol field, but as they had identified that there was no specific addiction psychology, it has been developed in a wide range of areas including social work, offending, mental health and homelessness fields. It has proven particularly effective with stuck or entrenched people from a wide range of backgrounds.
This course maps the key factors that elicit change and demonstrates how Motivational Interviewing works alongside these forces. Drawing on both person centred and directive techniques, it offers practical skills to assist the workers to helps people articulate and recognise the need for change. As such, it is an effective primer to increase engagement with people who have not yet achieved a sufficient level of commitment and move them into action with confrontation. As such, it can inform and develop the 3 conversations approach by increasing engagement, develop potential people strengths and create self-directed motivation for change.

Who is the Course For?: Motivational Interviewing is useful for a wide range of social issues. Its primary focus is on igniting motivation to change, and so it is helpful when people are stuck in problems and not advancing in change. As such it is helpful in all change and recovery based services such as mental health, substance misuse, offending social work, domestic violence, supported housing, young people’s services, family work and more besides.

Method of Delivery: The training programme comes with an extensive booklet for each participant. The training course is highly interactive, even during presentations. It uses a wide variety of learning approaches including presentations, pairs and small group work exercises and self-assessment. The course is also supported with free e-learning and further resources to re-cap, review and refresh learning.
