Autism and Aspergers

People with autism can find communicating and interacting with other people challenging and confusing, social situations can be stressful and making choices can be difficult to do. This one day training course provides a good introduction to autism, explores the challenges which people may experience and discusses ways of providing support. This course is suitable for anyone wanting to increase their understanding of autism and strategies to support individuals. It is relevant for both those who support children or adults on the autism spectrum.

Mental Health Awareness

We believe that raising awareness about mental health is a vital step towards reducing the stigma that surrounds it. For far too long, people of all ages with mental health problems have been stigmatised and marginalised.  But in recent years, the picture has started to change. Public attitudes towards mental health are improving, and there is a growing commitment to change the way we think about it.

There are case studies to help you understand the process of identifying and referring vulnerable individuals, in addition to providing you with support.

Self Harm

This one day course aims to educate learners about the warning signs, risk factors and actions to take should they suspect someone is self-harming. Through our work we have developed a deep understanding of the reasons individuals harm themselves and of the things they need to help them overcome their self-injury.  This enables us to help training participants from all settings and disciplines develop their own good working practice within clinical guidelines. Our training is continually assessed through feedback and evolves in response to current research and training needs.

Suicidal Behavioural Awareness

There is a great deal of fear and stigma surrounding the subject of suicide. People often don’t know how to recognise people who might be thinking about suicide or how to respond to the person.

It will be valuable for anyone who may come into contact with someone who has thoughts of suicide or who works with groups at increased risk of suicide.

Psychosis can affect one in every 100 people during the course of their lives, according to studies.

Working With Sex Offenders

This one-day course has been designed to equip practitioners and their organisations to better understand the intricacies that surround engaging with service users who are convicted sex offenders.
