more

Event Details

Overview

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a collaborative and empowering method which can effectively influence change through the use of person centred counselling skills and directive strategies. MI can be used with brief encounters and is shown to be more effective than traditional advice giving. This 2 day course incorporates the latest methods from the new 3rd edition of Motivational Interviewing by W.R. Miller and S. Rollnick. The quality assurance and development of this course has included input from Alan McRobbie, who is a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT).

Aim

This workshop is appropriate for practitioners who are in the role of conducting one-to-one therapeutic discussions with people using or misusing drugs and alcohol with the focus on making and sustaining healthy behaviour changes. This introductory course will begin to develop knowledge and skills in motivational interviewing and seeks to support practitioners to work towards improving service user outcomes through training in how to apply this method.

As an introductory course, it lays the foundations for further skills development. Participants should note that proficiency in motivational interviewing requires ongoing skills practise in their own practice settings and further skills development through ongoing training, coaching and feedback.

Learning Outcomes

• By the end of the course, participants will have:
• Defined the nature of ambivalence about change.
• Applied the spirit of motivational interviewing, integrated with the OARS counselling skills to engage a person in personal conversation.
• Analysed how motivational interviewing can influence change by intentionally evoking and strengthening natural language (change talk).
• Identified how motivational interviewing may be used within own practice setting.

more

Event Details

The Centre for Research on Families and Relationships are hosting a seminar on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and resilience. The seminar is FREE to attend and open to all.

The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) model promotes a cumulative model of developmental trauma that suggests that the more ACES a child experiences, the more likely they are to experience negative health, mental health and educational outcomes. In this seminar, Professor Jane Callaghan will explore the value inherent in this model (particularly in terms of popularising an understanding of the potential impact of trauma on children’s lives), but also consider its limitations, as a model that is individualist, and overly dependent on a neurodevelopmental account. In particular, the seminar will highlight the gendered assumptions and implications of the model, exploring ACES through an intersectional feminist lens.

Professor Jane Callaghan (@JaneEMCallaghan) is the Director of the Centre for Child Wellbeing and Protection at the University of Stirling. She is a psychologist and interdisciplinary researcher, with an established record of research in areas related to childhood, violence, family life, relationships, discrimination and exclusion, and mental health and identity. Jane is principal investigator on the four nation European Commission funded project “Understanding Agency and Resistance Strategies – Children’s Experiences of Domestic Violence”, the largest qualitative study of children who live with domestic violence conducted to date.

14marAll DayCreating Early Years Environments For Stimulating Play and Learning

more

Event Details

This event brings together outstanding experts from across the third sector, politics, and higher education to examine how we create spaces that encourage babies and young children to learn through play because they feel relaxed, comfortable, safe, and ‘at home’.

Environments promoting early independence

The Curriculum for Excellence states that ‘All early years settings need to provide flexible and stimulating environments to fully engage children in their learning’. Carefully planned spaces can promote high engagement and quality learning opportunities. This is your opportunity to reflect on the opportunities in your setting for children to explore and discover for themselves and to consider what you can do to offer an environment where this can happen. You will leave with tangible solutions to put into practice in your early years’ setting.

It is recognised that children learn and develop best in caring, supportive environments that respond to their individual needs, allowing them to play and explore. In addition to the physical environment, there are many ‘invisible’ influences, such as the way children are welcomed, are encouraged to learn within the setting, and the nature of the relationships between their peers and other adults.

Join us as we help you explore the opportunities for shaping your setting around the needs of the children you work with and encouraging learning through play.

Why come to this event?

  • Learn from outstanding experts involved in the delivery of ELC, higher education research, and senior parliamentarians
  • Your chance to question all of these great people
  • Join the conversation in an interactive roundtable discussion
  • Meet other people involved in ELC and share best practice

Who should attend?

  • Nursery managers/providers
  • Local authority children and young people professionals
  • Elected representatives with an interest in education
  • Academics interested in early years
  • Other professionals interested in early learning and childcare

15mar9:30 am4:30 pmUnderstanding Stigma - Promoting Inclusive Attitudes and Practice

more

Event Details

Overview

Stigma can have a profound impact upon the lives of people who use alcohol and other drugs or those who have a history of substance use. The impact of stigma can permeate numerous aspects of a person’s life such as their health and wellbeing, relationships, education and employment prospects
and socioeconomic status.

Commonly, family, friends, service providers and institutions often place numerous expectations on people who use substances to engage in change behaviour, however, the social context that creates and perpetuates the cycle of stigma is rarely considered or challenged. Through developing a greater awareness of the wider context that the cycle of stigma fosters and exploring our own role in reinforcing and challenging stigma, participants can identify new approaches for fostering enhanced relationships with service users.

Aim

This one day training will give participants a distinct set of knowledge and skills to help them understand and address alcohol and drug-related stigma.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
• Recall the meaning of stigma and the theory relating to stigma.
• Identify and understand the specific stigma attached to people who use substances, people in treatment or in recovery from substance use.
• Describe the consequences of the cycle of stigma.
• Identify our own attitudes and beliefs towards treatment options and treatment outcomes for substances.
• Identify language and practice which de-stigmatises people affected by substance use.
• Challenge stigma attached to people who use substances, people in treatment or in recovery from substance use.

Event Details

Scotland’s relationship with alcohol and drugs remains problematic

The Scottish Government have recently released Rights, Respect and Recovery, Scotland’s new alcohol and drugs strategy, bringing drugs and alcohol services under one strategy for the first time in a decade.

Last year the draft strategy All Together Now’ outlined the vision to create a Scotland where people do not develop problematic alcohol and drug use; instead they are supported and respected through harm reduction and support services – but how do we create services which address both whilst still maintaining separate support for service-users where necessary?

Achieving the outcomes of the strategy will be a challenge but it is possible that by working with those with lived experience, delivery partners, service providers, decision-makers, funders, representative groups and the research community to create truly integrated services.

Join Holyrood on 26 March as we analyse the outcomes of the strategy, understand how to bring services together and look at examples of good practice with our expert speakers.

Key issues we’ll examine with you

  • An in-depth look at the outcomes of the Scottish Government’s strategy, and the new alcohol and drugs frameworks
  • How to re-design services and how this will work in practice – making decisions on service provision and how to strike the balance between services
  • Including the voice of those with lived experience in service design
  • Priorities for health and social care services in Scotland and the latest evidence base for risk and harm reduction focused services

Confirmed speakers

  • Dr Eric Carlin, Director, Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems (SHAAP)

27mar12:30 pm1:30 pmYoung men's views on sex and relationships education

more

Event Details

Gender dynamics are known to be an issue in sex and relationships education, with boys and young men being perceived as disruptive, not taking lessons seriously, feeling uncomfortable themselves and making girls feel uncomfortable. Evidence suggests that young men value having male teachers as well as females, that they like being taught by people from outside school and that they want their teachers to be knowledgeable and experienced.

This seminar discusses findings from a study about young men’s views of relationships, including fatherhood, in workshops provided by two male facilitators from a local charity. In particular, we focus on the role of humour, its uses in reinforcing aspects of masculinity, and the relationship between humour and vulnerability.
