New training workshops for practitioners in the health, voluntary and third sector

23 January 2019

New training workshops for practitioners in the health, voluntary and third sector Research in Practice for Adults has launched two evidence-informed training workshops for practitioners and managers working in health, voluntary and third sector organisations. This includes:

In recognition of the inclusion of a new offence of controlling or coercive behaviour in an intimate or family relationship under the Serious Crime Act 2015, one of the upcoming workshops focuses on working with people experiencing controlling and coercive behaviour. This new legislation places an expectation on practitioners to be skilled and knowledgeable in working with people who may be at risk of coercion or control.

The workshop aims to support practitioners to gain knowledge about coercive control, including recognising when it may be happening and what professionals can do in their roles to support those experiencing it. It will also provide support to practitioners needing to evidence their continuing professional development.

In recognition of the change in classification of hoarding as a mental health condition, and of the inclusion of hoarding behaviour as a form of neglect under the Care Act 2014, the second workshops focuses on working with people who hoard. This new legislative landscape places an expectation on practitioners to be skilled and knowledgeable in this area of practice.

The workshop aims to support practitioners to learn about the condition and explore the most effective ways to support those who hoard. It will also provide support to practitioners needing to evidence their continuing professional development.
