Code: BH/22/0021 Hoarding Awareness Workshop

Most hoarded properties are ‘cleared out’ by cleaning teams. This leads to greater distress and more intense hoarding activity. Clients with hoarding disorder need understanding and empathy in order to help them to develop new behaviours to cope with their excess belongings. This course gives an overview of the condition and draws on the experiences of the practitioner/trainer in developing skills to work with people who hoard.   

This course is aimed at housing staff and social workers, and takes into consideration the knowledge and skills statement for social workers.

Code: BH/22/0024 Permanence – What does it Mean for Children and Young People and How can it be Achieved?

Social workers make life changing decisions regarding where children should live and who is best placed to meet their needs to ensure that they can be cared for in a way that minimises disruption in their long-term care (permanence). There are a range of permanence options for children including returning home to live with their parents; living with extended family or friends; living in a foster family or being adopted. Making these decisions are complex with social workers required to assess and consider the competing needs of children and family members; weigh different options and manage feelings stirred up in the process. Taking place over four days, this course is for anyone involved in the process of care planning for children. It aims to develop the knowledge and skills to make robust decisions regarding children’s long-term care, ensure children’s needs are met and offers an opportunity to reflect on the impact of making these decisions on the child, their family, carers, social worker and professional network.

Please note, this is a 4 session course, and you need to attend all dates. Please discuss with the trianers if this is a problem, ie clashes with a court date.
