“Ag Eisteacht’s training met our specific needs and had relevance and resonance for our PAs. It was a very positive experience that has brought positive changes for CIL staff and for our service users. We had some great feedback from our PAs, with many reporting a sense of being listened to and valued. They welcomed the opportunity to come together in such a supportive shared learning experience to discuss issues and hear of each other’s experiences.”

Building relationships and maintaining professional boundaries

Building relationships and maintaining professional boundaries

We designed this one-day ABLE workshop for Centres of Independent Living (CIL) to support their Personal Assistants (PAs) in managing their time and boundaries while nurturing quality relationships with clients.

Learning Outcomes:



Participants came away from the training with increased awareness about what their personal boundaries might be and felt empowered to reinforce boundaries with their clients.




Working closely with our client who commissioned this course, we tailored the content of our core ABLE brief intervention training for a team of audiologists.

The aim of the training is to support audiologists in building relationships with clients and to help them to manage boundaries of time, role and competence.

This course is recognised for 16.5 CPD points for members of Irish Academy of Audiology who can apply for CPD points on an individual basis.


Learning Aims & Outcomes:


"Very useful, eye-opening in terms of support it's possible for us to offer clients. It gives a particle accessible model"


"Very beneficial - it made me aware of myself and from day 2 I have been actively thinking about and applying the ABLE model to my practice. Would highly recommend the course" - Audiologist
