Our trainers have been very busy so far this year delivering our ABLE training in various locations. Most recently our trainers Patsy and Trish completed training with Hospital Family Resource Centre.
For all of our training, participants complete a pre and post course questionnaire. We then use this feedback to evaluate the training and the participant’s changes in skills, confidence, knowledge and behaviour.
During the training both Patsy and Trish was very taken by the enthusiasm and engagement from the group. The feedback from the course evaluation was also very positive. One participant stated that the training was ‘truly excellent and will change the way I will speak with people and listen more’ another participant said ‘Great opportunity to create space to reflect on work with clients’.
Changes in participant’s knowledge in areas such as Adverse Childhood Experiences, Infant Mental Health and Transition Theory can be seen in the chart below. The chart reflects the percentage of participants reporting to have a moderate to very high level of knowledge in the listed areas. It is very clear that following the training, 100% of participants reported having a moderate to very high level of knowledge in all areas listed.
These changes in knowledge are indicators that the learning outcome 2 – “Identify the challenges service users may have in building relationships and gain insights into what their behaviours may mean, using evidence based information” was achieved.
Following the training we asked participants how often they would use the ABLE Model in day to day practice. 67% said they would use model daily in practice, 8% said they would use the model weekly, 8% said they would use the model monthly and the remaining 17% said they would use the model ‘as required’.
