Code: PCC/21/737 Collaborative Leadership Between Organisations

This 3-hour virtual seminar for senior managers, with pre-recorded learning video, workbook, webinar and supporting toolkit focuses on harnessing collaborative leadership from an organisation’s external partnership perspective. The interactive session will encourage leaders to explore and address the 5 key rules of successful collaborative working:

 

Recognise that partnership working is difficult

Only collaborate if the task requires it. Collaboration is not the answer to all problems

Having a shared purpose and high levels of trust is essential

Be a good partner by having your own house in order

Collaboration requires leaders to lead collaboratively

Code: PCC/21/351 Safeguarding in a Strength Based Way (For all ASC Staff)

Safeguarding in a Strength Based Way (All ASC PCC Staff)

Target group: Basic awareness course for all ASC staff.


Aim: A strengths-based approach to adult safeguarding goes beyond a focus on the person’s vulnerability to engaging in conversations which focus on the service user’s strengths and resilience, and which identify the outcomes that the person wants to achieve for themselves to promote their wellbeing and stay safe. It also involves identifying the strengths and resources in the wider family and community that can build resilience for the person and reduce the risk of harm. Strengths-based safeguarding is underpinned by the six principles of adult safeguarding.

Code: PCC/21/699 Motivational Interviewing Cohort 6

***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.
