This two day training is designed to help those attending to develop a variety of easy to apply skills that facilitate the engagement of clients in a recovery focused manner. The training covers a broad range of techniques that help to connect with the client at a level that they can relate to, and develops rapport quickly and easily in order to ‘future pace’ and ‘lead’ the client on their recovery pathway.
These skills can be utilised at every stage of the recovery process and fit in nicely with the cycle of change. They can also be employed in both one to one and group situations and will be demonstrated during the interactive activities on the course.
Starting with the simple, yet powerful communication skills found in NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) that help to tap into the client’s frame of reference, develop rapport quickly, and guide the client through their recovery in a way that is ecological for them, then building on this in order to help the client think more creatively.
Other elements of the training include:
building self belief/esteem
recovery action planning
and draw from the techniques found in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)
Stress Solutions/Anxiety Management
Those attending the training will also receive a post training resources pack (PDF) including all the materials/exercises on the training.
