About this event

This training course is being virtually via Microsoft Teams

Connect 5 is a evidenced based collaborative prevention toolkit and approach that promotes psychological knowledge, understanding and awareness and the development of skills, which empower people to take proactive steps to build resilience and look after themselves. Connect 5 is a training programme designed for deep learning supporting practice change for the wider helping workforce.

Connect 5 is an incremental three-session programme, escalating skills though each session. The programme underpins the principle of ‘Making Every Contact Count’ and supports the aim of making the best use of the skills and local contacts of frontline staff. Some staff will just undertake session 1 whilst others will go on to do all three sessions.

• The trainer is concerned for the welfare of a delegate and would like to contact them “outside” of the virtual training environment
