Code: BH/19/0986 Brief Encounters

Brief Encounters® is a training course for anyone who is ever called upon for help with relationship problems. OnePlusOne has so far trained over 5,000 health care practitioners with great success.  (For those who do frequent direct work with parents, OnePlusOne's How To Argue Better course may be more relevant.  This is available to book through the Learning Gateway).

Often, when people reach out to you about relationship problems, you have a small but distinct window of opportunity to support and guide them. Brief Encounters® is designed to give you the practical tools, skills and information to be truly effective during this window.

After training in this easy-to-use, evidence-based model, you will be able to have effective conversations that positively influence couples to work through problems before they escalate. You will be in a stronger position to support child outcomes by enabling parents to help themselves without dependency on professional care.

As many as 97% of practitioners felt more confident after receiving the training and 91% felt a greater degree of control over their involvement in clients’ issues.
After training, practitioners were:

  • more likely to talk to parents about relationship issues
  • more than twice as likely to feel confident referring clients to external services
  • four times more likely to use strength-based techniques
