Safeguarding Adults Annual Refresher: Learning Lessons from Safeguarding Adults (Practice) Reviews for Managers, HGSW, SW, OT, Senior Carers and Nursing Staff

This training will  enable practitioners, in a supportive, non blaming environment, to understand the key themes emerging from Safeguarding Adults Reviews (in Wales these are called “Safeguarding Adults Practice Reviews”). Participants will also reflect on what the learning means for their practice with service users and their communication and joint working with staff of partner agencies.

This session will look at a selection of Reviews from across England and Wales, as well as some Reviews which are more local to the venue in which the training is taking place


Who should attend?
Anyone working in a health and/or social care setting. All participants should already be familiar with what Safeguarding Adults means in theory and in practice. This is an advanced session, for experienced practitioners. It is not an awareness session.

Code: PCC/22/514 Using Motivational Interviewing to support Reunification

Motivational Interviewing is a framework of intervention, brought together in the 1990s by Professor William Miller and Professor Stephen Rollnick. It is an approach designed to work with those most resistant to change or stuck in entrenched behaviours. The premise of Motivational Interviewing is that motivation is not a ‘fixed state’ that a person does or does not have. Rather, motivation ebbs and flows depending on many factors such as circumstances, mood and so forth. The skilled practitioner (or manager) will harness whatever very little motivation there might be, and help it move in the right direction. The Motivational Interviewing approach borrows in from other sources such as Carl Rogers’ person-centred counselling; Socratic thinking and Prochaska & DiClemente’s Cycle of Behaviour change.
