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.

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/21/1455 Epilepsy Awareness, Seizure Management and Buccal Midazolam - Zoom

This course examines the classification and  management of seizures in the context of adults with learning disabilities.  It also covers the role of staff in supporting people with epilepsy, the psychosocial impact on the person and the administation of emergency medication.

During the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown delivering face to face training is a lot more challenging. The guidelines around buccal midazolam/emergency medication administration training state that clear face to face training is best practice. However adapting to ensure we are protecting all involved is essential.

Therefore, this session will consist of  a virtual conference teaching resource which will be live and led by an experienced trainer who is able to answer any bespoke questions around epilepsy. This creates the safest and best training option currently.

The learning gained during the live session will be supported by an Epilespy Handout (workbook) which must be read by all learners prior to attending the Zoom session.  This pre-reading should take you about 30-60 minutes.  

After the virtual Zoom session there is an online theory assessment.  This is an “open book” assessment meaning that learners are allowed to refer to the Epilepsy Handout (workbook) during the assessment. 

For successful completion of this course and to be awarded a certificate of completion learners must have read the Epilepsy Handout (workbook), have attended the Zoom session and passed the post course online theory assessment.
