ABLE (Adopt a relational approach, Build, Listen & Empower) is a brief intervention training model that helps to equip you with a framework you can use to support clients who turn to you for help.
Relationships in practice matter. Studies show that practitioners’ ability to listen, understand and empathise impacts positively on health and wellbeing outcomes. We provide you with the training and opportunity to develop those skills.
Our accredited ABLE training courses include emerging scientific insights from the fields of relationship theory, Parent-Infant Mental Health, Childhood Development and Interpersonal Neurobiology, to help you understand what may be going on for the children and adults you engage with at work.
Our courses have been developed and fine-tuned over many years. This is in response to changes in knowledge and research, and in response to feedback and evaluations from our trainers, participants and commissioners. Each course is designed for specific practitioners, with relevant scenarios and content to help you to identify with situations in your routine work.
Who is it for?
Any frontline practitioner working in healthcare, social care, education or in community or voluntary roles.
What does ABLE give you?
- Interpersonal skills and knowledge to help build your confidence in engaging with service users so that you can develop relationships of trust.
- A framework to manage your boundaries of time, role and competence during difficult interactions so that you can look after your own wellbeing.
