Training for digital and manual resources
Bespoke training delivered by clinicians who are experts in the field and hold teaching qualifications, in a location convenient to you.
Our online training groups can host up to 35 candidates, and we run courses throughout the year.
The supervision is in place to allow the guide to feel supported after their one-day training and ensure the intervention is as effective as possible. Once you start to use the GSH intervention with a client, there may be times when things don’t go as planned, or you have questions about using the intervention. Post-training supervision is arranged with a trainer and can be face to face, via phone, email or digital technology. Each guide is entitled 2 post-training supervision sessions of up to 30 minutes each.
The training is very practical and involves getting hand on with the GSH resource and working with other participants to practice how you will support clients using this resource. It is delivered by a Psychologist and specialist dietitian or therapy assistant, and uses case studies and scenarios to enable participants to think through the application of the learning and any challenges they foresee.
Training and supervision is delivered by specialist eating disorder consultants, hosted online from 9.30 – 2.30pm over two separate days. This is followed by further bespoke training and supervision, (3 days in total). You must ensure that you are able to attend all sessions.
We can also provide on site group training for groups. Please contact us for more details.
