Course aims and objectives:
To equip the worker with tools, resources and knowledge to effectively support children, young people and adults in achieving positive change.
The Solution Focused Method
As part of the training programme you will learn the Solution Focused Method. This is a highly effective method that allows you to support children, young people and adults in solving problems quickly. This approach offers the worker 5 easy to follow steps and a very clear structure to work within and fits perfectly into a 1 hour session. There is a more in-depth explanation about the 5 steps you will learn when you visit HYPERLINK “http://www.solutionfocusedtrainingdvd.com” www.solutionfocusedtrainingdvd.com.
To help a family achieve positive change quickly it is also important that we understand why children, young people and adults behave the way they do. The ‘6 human needs’, which is another important part of this course, clearly explains human behaviour and offers instant solutions to many problems encountered during sessions.
To be able to build trust quickly, motivate someone to engage with you and be willing to take ownership of the process, you need to have specialist communication and people skills. The specialist skills you will learn during this training programme will help you with the following:
• Building trust
• Handling your client’s objections
• Increasing their motivation
• Discovering their strengths
• Providing clarity of what they want to achieve from working with you
• Staying focused on the intervention
• Turning negatives into positives – Identifying what they do want rather than what they don’t want
• Knowing how to work with individuals who say ‘ Don’t know’ or refuse to talk
• Knowing how to work with individuals who have been told to work with you but say there is no problem
• Knowing when the individual can manage their situation and no longer need you – exit strategy
• Increasing someone’s motivation to engage with you and take ownership
SOLUTION FOCUSED TRAINING PROGRAMME
Who will benefit from this training?
This training programme is especially designed for social workers, family support workers and those who support children, young people and adults in achieving change in their lives. During the training we will spend a lot of time on role play, practicing working 1 – 1 with a parent.
Role play also benefits workers who work directly with young people.
