Code: SGC/21/0843 FCSG: Parenting Teenagers Support Group

This support group has been set up specifically for carers of teenagers, who may be struggling, or would like to better cope with some of the behaviours that their young people are showing. 

The group will be facilitated by Thinking Aloud and will aim to meet once every 6 weeks during term time. The programme will very much be determined by yourselves, as this series of support groups has been set up with you in mind to meet your current needs.

It would be helpful if you could email  any particular issues that you would perhaps like covered in advance, as a more detailed programme could be drawn up ahead of the sessions, if we know what the issues are.

Code: SGC/21/0572 Principles of Strength-based Practice

CURRENTLY DELIVERED AS A WEBINAR - you will be sent an invite to join

Please note: By booking onto this course, you are consenting to your contact details being passed onto the trainer. This is so they can send the invitation to you.

This training is specifically for practitioners in South Glos Council's adult social care division, i.e. Social Workers, Occupational Therapists, Social Work Assistants, Occupational Therapy Assistants, Senior Practitioners etc.

Strength based approaches are not new in Adult Social Care. You will be familiar with this term and will be able to identify aspects of it in your current practice. Our starting point will be recognising the practice strengths and professional curiosity you already apply in South Gloucestershire in your work with adults and carers and enabling you to share ideas and tools with your colleagues. A strength-based approach is as much about how professionals think and feel about their role, and the individuals they work with, as it is about using new and/or different tools. It requires finding ways to share both power and responsibility with people to promote wellbeing. During the session you will have the chance to explore what this means for you and your colleagues in the challenging climate within which you are working.

Aim: To enable delegates to gain a consistent set of underpinning knowledge and to further develop skills and confidence in applying a strength-based approach in practice

Charges: This course is currently free.
