On 21st and 22nd September, our programme manager, Fern Higgins Atkinson and our training & development coordinator, Robyn Pinkham, will share insight into the impact of taking a relational approach in practice at the Prevention & Early Intervention (PEIN) Summit 2023 in Thomond Park, Limerick.

Fern and Robyn will present ‘Relationships Matter: A Case Study’ via a poster presentation to demonstrate the power of quality relationships in early intervention and prevention practice settings through a brief intervention training case study.

The case study is based on an evaluation of our evidence-based ABLE programme (Adopt a relational approach, Build, Listen & Empower), which was fully funded by the What works initiative in 2022 and delivered to frontline practitioners in fields including Early Intervention & Prevention services, Healthcare, Education, Community and Youth.

We are very grateful to PEIN for this opportunity to share the key findings and emerging themes.

The Summit Agenda has a powerful line-up of speakers and we wish them, attending delegates and all at PEIN every success.
