PSYCHODYNAMIC APPROACHES FOR FRONTLINE STAFF
Psychodynamic Approaches Outreach Training
We have developed outreach training in psychodynamic theory, aimed at front line workers who are helping people with different kinds of life issues and challenges. Intended participants include staff who work with addiction in residential, rehab and outreach settings, workers with ex-offenders and working with mental health clients.
The three-day course covers both theory and practice, and focusses on listening and feedback skills, anger management and self-care. There is also time in each day to look at specific problems and issues that come up for the staff.
Each day typically runs from 9.30am to about 4pm with breaks and lunch.
Our approach is to bring the theory and skills of psychodynamic counselling to front line staff in a way they can use in their own daily work, considering the practical and organisational settings in which staff operate. Such skills are equally of use to managers trying to support their staff and understand front line dilemmas.
Our emphasis as therapists is on using our understandings to give workers an alternative perspective, and help them consider how best to help their clients. We ensure that we give participants time to reflect on how they interact with clients and find new ways to approach the stresses and problems of working with difficult client groups.
DAY 1: The Psychodynamics of Communication
DAY 2: The Psychodynamics of Anger Management
DAY 3: Caring for Yourself
Talk to us!
We aim to make the training focused and appropriate to the needs of your organisation and your staff. To this end, we would like to meet with you to assess your needs and design a training to suit you.
Please contact Nick Hall by email email@example.com
Once we have an idea of your setting we can adapt the training to specifically help with the client group that you work with, using examples that reflect the kind of work you do
