WY-FI Project

West Yorkshire – Finding Independence | Supporting people with multiple needs

Complex Needs Training Suite

The Complex Needs Training Suite was a cohesive training package containing key principles and learning which both the National Fulfilling Lives programme and Making Every Adult Matter (MEAM) established were fundamental to working with multiple needs.

WY-FI provided opportunities for over 60 people to complete the course between 2019 and 2021.

All participants completed an introductory course over two days which consisted of the following elements:

  • Psychologically Informed Environments
  • Personality Disorders and Complex Trauma
  • Risk Enablement
  • Working with Challenging Behaviour

The participants then completed four further days training:

  • Understanding Personality and Personality Disorders
  • Trauma Informed Practice
  • Working with Complex Trauma (Level 2)
  • Understanding Multiple Needs as Experienced by Women
