Code: PCC/21/637 Introduction to Nonviolent Resistance (NVR)

Nonviolent Resistance (NVR) is an approach created to provide effective responses to aggressive, violent, self-destructive and controlling behaviour in children, adolescents and young adults. It is also used with anxious young people, whose behaviour controls the family through social withdrawal, internet, addiction, school non-attendance and similar difficulties.

The NVR key concepts of Resist, Persist, Unite, Repair provide an alternative empowering structure to deal with challenging behaviour when the usual approaches - rewards, incentives, sanctions, deterrents etc. are not working. It is a helpful addition within the context of foster carer training in providing a way of introducing boundaries in a way that will support non shaming approaches (connection before correction)

The NVR approach was introduced by Haim Omer in 2004. Drawing on the inspiration of figures like Gandhi and Martin Luther King who sought to challenge social injustice through peaceful means, Omer created a framework for use in homes, schools and communities providing practical strategies to help parents, carers and professionals:

? De-escalate in interactions with the child.
? Resist challenging and controlling behaviour.
? Build a united support network between home, school and community.
? Raise their presence and capacity to persist
? Reconnect and repair relationships with the child

Code: PCC/21/700 Motivational Interviewing Business Support (half day virtual)

***THIS TRAINING IS FOR CHILDREN'S SOCIAL CARE STAFF ONLY***

 

‘You lot don’t care! You’re going to take our kids away and you get a bonus for that’
‘Why aren’t you going to the neighbours down the road, they’re much worse than us!’
‘What do you know? Do you have kids of your own?’

Are these kinds of ‘heart-sink’ phrases familiar? Do you or your staff frequently find themselves on the defensive as practitioners or as managers? In an environment of diminishing resources and increasing demand on services, we need a fresh and imaginative approach.
Motivational Interviewing is a framework of intervention, brought together in the 1990s by Professor William Miller and Professor Stephen Rollnick. It is an approach designed to work with those most resistant to change or stuck in entrenched behaviours. The premise of Motivational Interviewing is that motivation is not a ‘fixed state’ that a person does or does not have. Rather, motivation ebbs and flows depending on many factors such as circumstances, mood and so forth. The skilled practitioner (or manager) will harness whatever very little motivation there might be, and help it move in the right direction. The Motivational Interviewing approach borrows in from other sources such as Carl Rogers’ person-centred counselling; Socratic thinking and Prochaska & DiClemente’s Cycle of Behaviour change.
The key principles are:
• Engagement with the client, rather than doing something to them – i.e. change cannot be forced or pushed on to someone. It has to be internal for the client to be meaningful and long term.
• Rolling with resistance (NB this is not rolling over or being passive)
• Express empathy
• Avoid conflict
• Developing discrepancy in client’s thinking
• Support self-responsibility
Clients are often stuck or ambivalent about making changes for themselves. Practitioners can easily collude with this ‘stuckness’, or out of frustration try to push people to action, which only increases resistance. Motivational Interviewing helps to make the practitioner aware of these tendencies, and give them options to work more powerfully in ways that create more possibility of change for their clients.
Our MI training course gives a highly interactive and practical experience of Motivational Interviewing, and its potential power to engage with people meaningfully, rather than do something to them. There will be opportunities for demonstration, discussion, and questions, conducted in ways that model the principles of a motivational skills approach. We will explore together how we can all nurture even the smallest steps of progress, with the emphasis on encouragement and trying to bring out the best in others as well as ourselves.

Code: PCC/21/332 Safeguarding Adults Annual Refresher: Learning Lessons from Safeguarding Adults (Practice) Reviews for Managers, HGSW, SW, OT, Senior Carers and Nursing Staff

Delegates must attend both sessions to complete the course - please add both dates into your calendar.

Safeguarding Adults Annual Refresher: Learning Lessons from Safeguarding Adults (Practice) Reviews for Managers, HGSW, SW, OT, Senior Carers and Nursing Staff

 

The training is split into two sessions over consecutive days. The training will  enable practitioners, in a supportive, non blaming environment, to understand the key themes emerging from Safeguarding Adults Reviews (in Wales these are called “Safeguarding Adults Practice Reviews”). Participants will also reflect on what the learning means for their practice with service users and their communication and joint working with staff of partner agencies.

This session will look at a selection of Reviews from across England and Wales, as well as some Reviews which are more local to the venue in which the training is taking place


Who should attend?
Anyone working in a health and/or social care setting. All participants should already be familiar with what Safeguarding Adults means in theory and in practice. This is an advanced session, for experienced practitioners. It is not an awareness session.

Code: PCC/21/801 The Record Business: To Support Writing Assessments and Reports (Cancelled)

All too often social care assessments lack structure and are unclear, unfocused and repetitive. This means the message and impact are weakened or lost. When writing assessments and support plans we need to do so in a clear, concise, relevant and meaningful way. And that means taking the reader (whoever that may be) with us every step of the way. We simply need to convince them that we know what we are talking about and are worth listening to.

Assessments will be read, understood and followed if they are easy to read, easy to understand and easy to follow. Research, inspections and inquiries have all raised concerns that social care assessments often lacks analysis and the child or service user’s voice. All too frequently, writing is mainly narrative and descriptive. There is a lot of information and a lot of facts. But we need to make sense of those facts and that information. What do they tell us? Why do they tell us that? What should we do as a consequence of that? Use the evidence to form your thinking
