This 2 day workshop is intended for trained facilitators who’ve had a break before or between delivering the programme to parents. The refresher workshop will also help facilitators who do not feel confident about their understanding or delivery of the curriculum.
This training is essential for facilitators who are going to embark on delivering SFSC as part of the Together research study and for these participants the training is free of charge.
The workshop aims to:
revisit the evidence and concepts that inform SFSC
review the SFSC curriculum and the methods used to deliver it to parents
provide an opportunity to practice delivery.
Qualifications and experience needed
Delegates must have completed the five day SFSC training course.
Format of the day
This tried and tested workshop will include:
exploration of evidence on parenting and the outcomes for children
modelling of effective practice in programme delivery
signposting to other support and resources
opportunities for individuals to practice and reflect on how they can implement best practice.
