We are delighted to be working with HSCB providing the Capacity to Change Programme developed by the The University of Bristol.
We are the licenced national training provider in this approach which focuses specifically on parental capacity to change, with the aim of improving practitioner skills and better informing future planning and decision-making.
Northern Ireland HSCB identified a gap in their ongoing assessment initiatives regarding parental capacity to change, and therefore were keen to train practitioners from across Northern Ireland in the C Change model.
29 HSCB participants have completed the 2-day training and 1 follow up day. The latter included embedding the C-Change model into practice using participant case material. This was a reflective day with ample time to use the materials and reflect on the practitioner/parent relationship dynamics.
HSCB have booked a 2nd follow up day to specifically look at developing the C-Change materials in report writing for court, including observation to evidence actual change.
100% of participants would recommend the 2 day and follow up training to other practitioners.
This training needed to fit with other initiatives and Interface were very accommodating. There was also excellent communication both prior to and during the training.
