Demand for our ABLE brief intervention training is continuing to grow, and we are pleased to announce that we are planning a third open course in Cork this autumn.
The course is for practitioners working in health, social care and community settings. The ABLE (Adopt a relational approach, Build, Listen and Empower) model develops practitioners’ ability to build relationships and to manage boundaries.
Dr Maeve Hurley, our founder and CEO said: “It requires specific communication skills such as the ability to build rapport and to listen reflectively to ensure that we can empathise and understand what is like for the other person. This is all part of the relationship building process and establishes trust.
“Our goal is to ensure that practitioners have the core skills and framework to make the most of every intervention and learn how to manage their time and boundaries at the same time.
“Good quality relationships in our lives are the foundation for better health outcomes,” she said.
The ABLE training offers 16.5 CPD hours and is approved for CPD purposes by Social Care Ireland, Irish Association of Speech and Language Therapists ( IASLT), Irish Academy of Audiologists ( IAOA), the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland, the Irish Association of Social Workers, the Irish College of General Practitioners, the Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and the Department of Education.
The three-day course takes place on September 17th, October 1st and 2nd at Northridge House Education Centre, Castle Road, Blackrock, Cork, T12H970. Tickets €250-€300, via Eventbrite or 021-453 6556 or email [email protected]
