Code: BH/17/073 Triple P - Standard Teen

Standard Teen Triple P is a broadly focused parenting support intervention on a one-to one basis for parents of teenagers up to 16 years of age. After thorough family assessment, parents set their own goals, learn ways to encourage positive behaviour for teens, and teach their teens new skills such as problem solving, conflict resolution, and self-regulation. Over 10 one-to-one sessions, parents identify the influences on teenagers’ behaviour and set their own goals for change. Parents also learn ways to use appropriate consequences for problem behaviour (e.g. breaking family rules, taking inappropriate risks, emotional outbursts).

To provide Standard Teen Triple P to families, practitioners must complete the approved training programme and demonstrate their knowledge and competence in programme delivery through a skills-based accreditation process.

This is a three day course and is for Parenting Practitioners and ITF workers only. Participants will also need to attend additional accreditation sessions.

Information for Brighton & Hove City Council applicants 

Places for this course will be prioritised for workers who have already shadowed a Level 4 Teen group. As a minimum, applicants will need to commit to also co-facilitating a Triple P Teen Group in the autumn term, and subsequently commit to deliver a specified number of parenting interventions.

Code: BH/17/932 WRAP ( Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent) and Far Right Aware - Adult Social Care

Prevent is one of the four strands of CONTEST, the Government’s Counter Terrorism Strategy.  The ‘Prevent’ Strategy is to reduce the threat to the UK from terrorism and aims ‘to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism’.  Prevent addresses all forms of terrorism.

The WRAP - ‘Workshop To Raise Awareness Of Prevent’ - training provides an introduction to ‘Prevent’ aimed at objective two of the Prevent strategy - supporting vulnerable people.  It has been developed by the Home Office to raise awareness of and explain Prevent within the wider safeguarding context.  The workshop will develop your knowledge of support available and skills to recognise when someone may be becoming involved in or supporting terrorism, to help them make a decision not to carry on that path, before any crime is committed.

The Far Right Aware section in the workshop is designed to augment existing WRAP training on extremism issues, focusing on how they relate to the extreme right.  It will enable professionals in their role to challenge extremist and terrorist ideology.   

This training is aimed at front line staff in adult assessment services and managers and deputy managers of adult social care provider services.
