Code: BH/21/1365 RSPH (Level 2) Supporting Behaviour Change (Health & Wellbeing) (EVENT FULL)

This popular, accredited course provides participants with the knowledge, skills and confidence to offer opportunistic brief advice to, or engage in, brief interventions with individuals which could improve their health and wellbeing. It is a Level 2 accredited Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) Award.

Participants will develop skills in reflective listening and be introduced to the principles which underpin motivational interviewing, whilst also considering what helps and hinders the change process, including developing awareness about resistance and reluctance.

By the end of the course participants will have developed a toolkit of strategies they can apply when working with individuals to facilitate behaviour change.

The course is currently being offered remotely, with the training delivered via four Zoom sessions and supported by completion of set self-directed reading and tasks. Please note this course was previously delivered over two full days.

Participants will be required to:

·         Attend 3 x 3-hour online training sessions, via Zoom

·         Complete self-directed tasks set by the trainers, prior to and between Zoom sessions (up to 4 hours)

·         Attend a 3-hour revision and exam online session, via Zoom (for those wanting RSPH accreditation)

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.

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.

About the Making Every Contact Count programme 

Aims and ambitions
Make Every Contact Count (MECC) enables the delivery of consistent and concise health and wellbeing information and encourages individuals to engage in conversations about their health at scale across organisations and populations.

The fundamental idea underpinning the MECC approach is simple. It recognises that staff across health and care, local authority and voluntary sectors have thousands of contacts every day with individuals and are ideally placed to support health and wellbeing.

MECC is intended for anyone who has contact with people to “Make Every Contact Count” and develop public health knowledge.

Online Learning
E-Learning for Healthcare and Health Education England provide an interactive learning resource for MECC. It supports the development of knowledge and understanding in asking people about their health and well-being.
