Code: SGC/23/0300 Supporting People with Dementia using Positive Approaches

This training session is appropriate for everyone who works in social care settings who interact, communicate with and support people who have dementia.

This day is an updated version of the course entitled, ‘Connecting with People with Dementia.’ The facilitators believe people who have completed the previous course would benefit from attending this course too, as it has been adapted to incorporate Positive Approaches to CareTM. The core principle of PACTM is that as carers, we need to change our approach in order to understand how it feels to be living with the challenges and learn techniques to support people in a person centred way.

The day introduces Positive Approaches to CareTM and will enable participants to develop their understanding and skills in order to provide person centred support to people who have dementia.

The standard charge for this course is £95 per day. Please refer to our Course Charges on the Home page for information on discounts and exemptions

Code: SGC/23/0237 Wellbeing Coaching - South Glos staff only (Deb Parsons)

These 50 minute coaching sessions with coaches will assist council staff in coming up with strategies and action plans to maintain and build their wellbeing and resilience. Unlike counselling which provides a safe space to explore worries and concerns, these confidential coaching sessions will help staff come up with individual plans to help them build their resilience, understand what they can do to enhance their wellbeing and overcome current and future obstacles. There are activities and exercises that wellbeing coaches can also give people to work through in their own time if they would find it useful.

Please note these sessions will be delivered by skype or telephone.  Your coach will contact you to confirm the best method for you.

Code: SGC/22/0836 FCSG: Male Carers Support 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.

Please note that this support group will be taking place at Badminton Road Council Offices. There will be security on the door to let you in from 18:45. This will be the first face to face gathering to have taken place for this group.

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).

The programme is designed for Care Provider managers, Social Worker and Occupational Therapy staff and managers, nurses and all other professionals working in health and social care.

Code: SGC/23/0030 Conversations with Carers

This course will explore the crucial role that carers play as a key partner of Adult Social Care. 

We will look at key data about carers, including in relation to some of the challenges that are commonly faced. You will also benefit from the opportunity to reflect on your own experiences, personal and professional, of caring and carers, and to learn from the lived experiences of carers including a guest speaker from South Gloucestershire. The Carers’ Support Centre will share their expertise in relation to working with and supporting carers over many years. Alongside colleagues, you will explore how to apply 3Cs, strengths-based approaches and legal literacy in your engagement with carers in line with South Gloucestershire Council ‘Carer Practitioner Guidance’. A key theme throughout the day will be recognising the positive impact that you, as a practitioner, can have in promoting the rights and wellbeing of carers and as a result, the wellbeing of adult(s) they care for.
