We offer one day training sessions introducing the basics of Protective Behaviours, which can then be followed by optional half day Practice Workshops specific to the groups of individuals you work with. Courses run regularly at our own premises, or can be delivered to your organisation as a bespoke session.
The one day basic training explores the themes and ideas of Protective Behaviours and how practitioners can use the skills for themselves in their work.
Benefits to participants include:
- Development of safety awareness skills for ourselves and for the people we work with
- A range of tools that can be used when working with children, young people and parents
Benefits for clients and their families include skills and strategies for:
- Improved self-esteem and family relationships
- Improved safety awareness
- Increased ability in assertiveness and problem-solving
By the end of this course you will be able to:
- Examine how to develop Safety Awareness for ourselves and people that we work with
- Review what gets in the way of people acting for their own safety
- Examine how to make Safe Choices – exploring thoughts, feelings and behaviour
- Identify how to develop Networks of Support
- Use Safe Language to create a safe environment
The practice workshops allow participants to explore ways of using Protective Behaviours with the individuals they work with. Currently we offer the following workshops, but please contact us to discuss how we can support any other groups not mentioned:
- Working with Teenagers
- Working with Families
- Supporting Children with Disabilities
