ABOUT THE DECIDER SKILLS 2 DAY WORKSHOPS
The Decider Skills workshops run over 2 full days, starting with an
introduction about The Decider and The Lifejacket Metaphor on the first
Michelle and Carol then demonstrate how they teach and
present all 32 skills. There are group discussions and
opportunities to share ideas about how participants might teach the
skills to their client group.
The workshop is fun, creative and
innovative...and probably very unlike anything you've attended before!
The aim is to demonstrate to clinicians how they can use the skills
effectively within their professional practice, both in groups and with
individuals. Participants also find the skills very useful for their
own personal lives.
The workshops are for everyone who works with
people with mental health problems, including: mental health nurses,
occupational therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, support workers,
nursing assistants, volunteers, social workers, probation and prison
staff, therapists and consultant service users.
We recommend at
least 2 individuals from a team attend the workshop together.
