This module takes a research and rights focused approach to working with autistic people, learning disabled people, and those who are both autistic and learning disabled.

You will look at these challenges from a family perspective across the lifecourse, considering work with autistic/LD parents, children, teenagers and adults.

This will be taught through 3 full-day sessions over a five week period during the University’s spring term.

You can choose to take the module at an undergraduate or postgraduate level. Whilst both will receive the same taught content, the module assessment will be tailored to meet either BA year 3 standards or MA standards.

Code: BH/21/0078 Emotion Coaching

Emotion Coaching has been found to help children and young people better understand their emotions, as well as regulate, improve and take ownership of their behaviour. Emotion Coached children and young people:

·         Achieve more academically in school
·         Are more popular
·         Have fewer behavioural problems
·         Have fewer infectious illnesses
·         Are more emotionally stable
·         Are more resilient                                            

                                       (Gottman 1997)

Emotion Coaching can also help practitioners to be more sensitive to the needs of children and young people, create more consistent responses to behaviour, feel more ‘in control’ during incidents, and promote positive relationships between adults and children.

Delegates will be encouraged between Day 1 and 2 to reflect on their learning and experiences. This will involve keeping a reflective diary to consider how you have used Emotion Coaching ‘in the moment’, what went well and what you have learnt through ‘getting it wrong’, which is an important part of the learning process and EC journey.

Between days 1 and 2, you will also need to watch the half hour video here

At the end of the 2 day course, you will consider how you can further embed Emotion Coaching into your work and personal lives and consider how to “adopt” and “adapt” into your professional practice. “you need to practise to improve practice” (Gilbert, 2018)

Please note, this is now a 2 day course. No need to redo if already done the 1 day course.

Code: BH/20/1643 Managing and Learning from Medication Errors (Adult Social Care) (Zoom) (EVENT FULL)

This course is aimed at managers and seniors that look at the process by which medicines are managed.

If you’re trying to reduce medication errors stop right now, you’re thinking about this the wrong way around. You want to reduce the harm that medication errors (or more correctly medication incidents) cause, and the only way you’ll do this is by learning from these incidents. With success, you’ll see your reported incidents go up, giving you more opportunities to learn. But the harm they cause should go down.

This course will teach you how manage, report and learn from medication incidents. It will enable you to provide the correct response to Safeguarding Teams and Care Quality Commission (CQC). It will enable you to reduce the chance of harm from medication incidents occurring by learning from them.

We can study actual medicines incidents that have occurred in your organisation in the case studies (if you are able to send suitable examples to us prior to the course.

In addition to the handout, you will be sent an electronic copy of our medicines incident form and investigation protocols.
