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.Essential Information
