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:
- Identify situations from audiology practice when communication may be difficult
- Reflect on and evaluate the factors which help to create and build a working relationship with parents and other service users

- Understand the Theory of Transactional Analysis and consider its use as a model of understanding communication
- Share insight into Infant Mental Health and Attachment Theory to help audiologists in listening to and supporting service users
- Outline and demonstrate the skills of ABLE, building rapport and trust, listening reflectively and empowering the service user to participate in decisions and plans
