Code: BH/21/1032 Advanced Behaviour Change (4 x Half-Day Course)

 

A four half-day practice focused self-reflective course providing the learner with the opportunity to enhance their knowledge, skills and confidence to engage in brief interventions to facilitate behaviour change with people whatever their readiness to change.

Inbetween the sessions three and four, participants will be asked to record a short ‘behaviour change’ (via a voice recording app or zoom/Teams) intervention to then share in an appropriate format  with the aim to gain constructive feedback to affirm and enhance practice so there is an emphasis on analysis of practice.

Participants will develop skills in motivational interviewing, specifically differentiating change talk from commitment language, and learning how to elicit and shape the two to strengthen the outcome of interventions.

By the end of the course participants will have enhanced a toolkit of strategies they can apply when working with individuals to facilitate behaviour change over a short or longer term basis, including more complex cases and in dealing with resistance.

PLEASE NOTE: 
Designed for practitioners who understand the fundamental elements of facilitating behaviour change and have practiced it over time and now seek more advanced training in it. We would encourage participants who have at least 2 years’ experience of working one-to-one with individuals to facilitate change to attend.

The course aims to build on the learning from the RSPH Supporting Behaviour Change course which we would recommend should have been attended prior to this course.  We will work to enhance our skills to facilitate behaviour change relating to health and wellbeing e.g. in the community and voluntary sector; social care, in community pharmacies, in sport and leisure, in mental health, in the community and voluntary sector; those working in education, youth work, criminal justice and the housing sector.

On requesting a place you will be sent a Behaviour Change questionnaire which you should fill in and return to the trainer before the course start date.

Code: BH/21/1388 Career conversations and progression for BME staff (EVENT FULL)

This session is now full - places are available on the November session

As part of Our People Promise commitment to be a fair and inclusive place to work, we will be piloting a 6-month  Diverse Talent development programme to develop and retain staff from groups under-represented in the council’s workforce.  Before opening the programme to applications, we are offering this preliminary session to support interested participants and help them decide if the 6-month programme is right for them.

The council’s workforce data shows that our Black & Minority Ethnic (BME) staff are not proportionately represented at grades SO1/2 and above.  This session is aimed to support BME staff at grades 3, 4, 5 and 6 with their personal and professional development, increasing confidence to progress in their career and to overcome barriers in accessing opportunities and gaining promotion.  During the session we will consider how you see your career progressing, what you would like to achieve and complete an action plan to help you do this. 

We will give a full overview of the proposed 6-month programme, due to launch in January 2022 so that you can decide whether you would like to apply.   There is no obligation from attending this preliminary session and you may decide that the session content meets your needs right now, or choose to pursue another of our options to help develop your career. 

The session will be delivered via Zoom by Lesley Aitcheson, Ceruleanblu. Lesley has delivered our successful Anti-Racism training and is looking forward to working with you on this new and exciting offer.

Code: BH/21/0856 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.

Code: BH/21/1091 Safeguarding Adults: Effective Minute taking in Safeguarding Meetings

This course is for people working in Brighton and Hove City Council and Sussex Partnership Foundations Trust integrated teams only and is open to anyone who takes minutes of safeguarding meetings - including both admin and non-admin staff.

"Safeguarding meetings may be the best way to ensure effective co-ordination of different aspects of an enquiry that relate directly to the adult or decisions that affect them.

There are circumstances when a meeting should be considered such as:

- Responding to self-neglect.
- Risk sharing and safety planning.
- Co-ordinating the response to safeguarding concerns and the quality of care provision.
- Co-ordinating criminal investigations and safeguarding enquiries.
- Reviewing outcomes and agreeing a safeguarding plan.
- Managing multiple safeguarding enquiries such as for organisational abuse.

Notes of meetings are a reflection of key points, decisions and actions rather than a verbatim account. Notes of the meeting will be provided to all attendees with the opportunity to provide comments following the meeting." - 2.3.6 Sussex Safeguarding Adults Procedures. 

This course will provide those taking minutes with an overview of the wider context of adult safeguarding and the respective role of the key stakeholders involved. It will enable participants to explore the key skills in minute taking and equip them with the knowledge and confidence to take effective minutes and notes within the adult safeguarding framework for Brighton and Hove.
