Event Details

This one-day seminar will provide an opportunity for practitioners and managers to review and explore the ways in which Core Skills for preventing relapse and recovery management have been rolled out across services in Scotland. With an emphasis on addressing complex substance use and mental health needs together, the NES Core Skills training and coaching programme has been delivered by local trainers over the last eight years. The current focus on Workforce Development to support the strategy, ‘Rights, Respect and Recovery,’ provides the opportunity to review the ways in which local services have developed training programmes to enhance practitioner development and encourage use of these skills in practice to promote recovery and reduce overdoses. This seminar will highlight the training and coaching happening, explore resources available, and discuss the challenges faced. Coaching, training and supervision strategies to enhance implementation will be explored based upon the model provided by the National Implementation Research Network (NIRN).

Target Audience:
This seminar has been developed for practitioners, managers, and commissioners working in substance misuse and mental health services which provide low intensity interventions and psychological therapies, including applicants from the NHS, social care and third sector organisations.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
