We are offering the course again in Spring 2021
We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be running the Complex Needs Training Suite again in Spring 2021. Register your interest for a place before Friday 11th December 2020.
We’ve made some changes to how the training modules will be delivered so that we can offer places to as many people as possible.
The modules are a combination of e-learning, self-directed study and online workshops.
The e-learning will include pre-recorded PowerPoint presentations and details of the self-directed study sessions. E-learning links will be circulated by email two weeks prior to each online workshop.
The e-learning and the self-directed study elements of each module must be completed before attending the online workshops, which will take place between January and May 2021 (see the full timetable below). Please note: all workshops will run from 1:30pm to 4:30 pm.
|Group||Day 1||Day 2||Day 3||Day 4||Day 5||Day 6|
|1||Monday 18th Jan||Tuesday 19th Jan||Monday 8th February||Monday 8th March||Monday 12th April||Wednesday 21st April|
|2||Wednesday 20th Jan||Thursday 21st Jan||Tuesday 9th February||Tuesday 9th March||Tuesday 13th April||Friday 23rd April|
|3||Monday 25th Jan||Tuesday 26th Jan||Wednesday 10th February||Wednesday 10th March||Wednesday 14th April||Thursday 29th April|
|4||Wednesday 27th January||Thursday 28th January||Thursday 11th February||Thursday 11th March||Thursday 15th April||Friday 30th April|
The self-directed study will take between one and two hours per module, and the total time spent on the course will be equivalent to six working days.
Therefore it’s crucial that all delegates seek the approval of their employing organisation and agree protected time to complete all the e-learning, self-directed study tasks and workshops.
Delegates will be assigned to study groups of eight people, and will stay with the same group for the duration of the training.
The Complex Needs Training Suite – What is it?
This suite of courses has been developed in partnership with Community Links Training and Women Centred Solutions.
It’s a cohesive training package containing key principles and learning which both the National Fulfilling Lives programme and Making Every Adult Matter (MEAM) have established are fundamental to working with multiple needs.
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
