Free Workshop: Helping Overcome Problems Effectively

hope flyer pic

Our friends at the HOPE programme are having a free interactive workshop on 6th November. This is a chance for any interested person (patient, carer, student, staff, researcher, commissioner, etc.) to meet members of the HOPE team and experience some of the behaviour change activities supported by the programme.

HOPE is a flexible self-management programme for patients with a range of long term conditions including, cancer, dementia, HIV, parents of children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and carers of people with long term conditions.

Apologies for the poor quality pic but I only had a hard copy of the flyer at the time of writing. Well worth visiting www.hopeprogramme.co.uk to find out more. The workshop is 12.15-1.45 pm in RC125 (First floor Richard Crossman Building, Coventry University CV1 5RW).

Intervention Mapping Workshop – no Danish but seemed to go well!

Thanks very much to everyone who made our Behaviour  Change Training Workshop on Intervention Mapping (11 September) such a success.  Despite the unfulfilled promise of Danish pastries (which never did turn up but will be posted out to participants if they do), the day seemed to go very well.

We ask participants to self-rate their confidence in each of the workshop’s key learning outcomes: before the workshop begins and again at the end of the day.  The numbers are small and I haven’t done any statistical testing, but a preliminary look at the data suggests that the training left participants feeling more confident in all areas of intervention design.

Looking forward to our next workshop which is likely to be in early 2014.  If you’d like us to run one sooner please let us know.

Best wishes

Training in the psychology of mindfulness, acceptance and commitment

h

What is it?

We offer introductory training that develops knowledge and skills in

  • The psychology of mindfulness, acceptance and commitment
  • Practical skills in mindfulness based interventions
  • The evidence base for mindfulness based interventions in mental and physical health settings

Who is it for?

This training is suitable for anyone who works with others to help them accept, adjust to and cope with difficult life circumstances, for example, those with long term health conditions, chronic pain, or stress.

If you have a number of people who want to be trained, we can bring the training to you and tailor the programme to your specific needs. We also run training days on our Coventry campus, for individuals to attend. These too can be tailored to meet the needs of the individuals who sign up.

When is it?

Our on-campus workshop in mindfulness approaches will be on 4th September 2013. For further details or to book a place click here.
