Code: BH/18/1235 ASYE Adults CPD Module - Social Work with Adults

To log your interest for this CPD module please click on “request a place"

This module offers students the opportunity to develop further knowledge about issues in adult services and to focus and reflect critically upon the complex roles undertaken by social workers in adult services, including mental health services.  The module is designed specifically to support the Assessed and Supported Year in Employment (ASYE).

Students are supported to consider what it is to provide effective, outcome-based and person-centred assessment and support planning within their own areas of practice.  They identify the professional, ethical, organisational, legal and policy dimensions of intervention and consider how their practice might best contribute to the promotion of key outcomes such as personalised support, wellbeing, recovery and social justice. They begin to explore the meaning of professional leadership for themselves as qualified practitioners.

Code: BH/19/0019 Solution Focused Approach to Working with Children and Families (EVENT FULL)

Solution Focused Practice is a short-term, goal-oriented approach which helps clients change by constructing solutions rather than dwelling on problems.  Elements of the solution are often already present in the client’s life and become the basis for ongoing change.  The course covers ways in which this can be achieved and includes opportunities to practise the approach, apply it in the workplace and share the experiences with others.

This 2 day course explores how a Solution Focused Brief Therapy approach can be used in a variety of contexts including health, social care and educational settings where change is required.
