This course is for managers/supervisors in adult social care services that are required to induct new staff and for managers / supervisors to have an opportunity to increase their knowledge, skills and competence in delivering effective induction and supervision.

As the Care Certificate was introduced 4 years ago and is now embedded in Adult Social Care it will no longer be covered in the induction part of this course. Instead, general induction will be covered. 

For those of you who do the Care Certificate as part of your workplace induction, there are a number of documents attached that will provide support for you in inducting staff, whether they are new to adult social care or have adult social care experience and / or a social care qualification.

Code: BH/19/0935 Parents as Partners - Facilitator Training (EVENT FULL)

PLEASE NOTE: If you are interested in applying to recieve this training please request a place, then complete the attached application form and send it to Stephen.Woodward@brighton-hove.gov.uk 

The deadline for applications is 31 July 2019.


Parents as Partners (PasP)  is a group intervention for couples and co-parents of young children which originated in the US, developed by Professors Phil and Carolyn Cowan and has a sound evidence-base, developed over 40 years in the US and UK, showing significant decrease in couple conflict and child difficulties, and improvements in adult mental wellbeing, parenting confidence and relationship satisfaction. The programme is delivered over 16 weekly two-hour sessions and is manualised, but requires considerable skill and flexibility of its facilitators. As an intervention, it lies somewhere between psycho-educational parenting programmes and group therapy. Distinguishing it from most other programmes for parents, it is a requirement of the work that both parents attend together, and Group Leaders work in male/female pairs.

This 4-day training course forms the first part of the process of becoming an accredited Parents as Partners Group Leader. In the second part, the student co-leads a 16-week programme under Tavistock Relationships supervision (including some video feedback), which – if completed successfully – will lead to full accreditation.

The training requires active involvement from participants and includes several opportunities to practice group facilitation, with support and feedback from the Tavistock relationships team.

You will be provided with:
Fortnightly clinical supervision provided by experienced facilitators from Tavistock Relationships
An accreditation (upon completion of your first co-facilitated group)
Optional training to deliver the course content during individual work with couples

Code: BH/19/1315 The Brighton Functional Family Therapy Team Conference

For Therapists, Managers, Practitioners and Policy Makers

In June 2008 Brighton & Hove LA established the first UK based Functional Family Therapy Team.

In the following 11 years the Brighton team has supported the implementation and training of a further 15 FFT teams and 3 FFTCW teams. These teams have all been set up as a way of helping to reduce the numbers of children and young people becoming looked after, reducing offending/custody rates and improving outcomes for families as a whole.

FFT is an evidence based (Blue Prints certified) assertive outreach, systemic/behavioural model.

There are currently 300+ FFT(LLC) & FFTCW(LLC) sites in 10 countries worldwide serving in urban, rural and indigenous communities.

The focus of Functional Family Therapy is on helping young people and their families, by repairing family bonds, improving relationships and providing skills and strategies that support more successful family interactions and reduces risk.

The team invite you to come and share in a day of celebration, hear from other local authorities and providers about how FFT has enabled them to work with families and how using the models has impacted on the amount of young people needing to be looked after, CSE/CCE and reoffending & custody rates.

It is possible for people from outside of Brighton and Hove to register and attend and will be warmly welcomed. Please contact john.cavanagh@brighton-hove.gov.uk or Emily.davidson@brighton-hove.gov.uk if you wish to make multiple purchases and a purchase order is needed.

Children transitioning to permanence (be it family and friends placements, long term fostering, special guardianship, adoption and reunification) are often contending with moves from difficult pasts to unknown futures and are likely to experience a range of intense and conflicting emotions.

The course is specifically aimed at foster carers and social workers who are involved in supporting children through this process. The longer term implications for children and young people, as well as the impact on their carers will also be explored.
