Event description
The Connect 5 programme is an accessible, evidence based training that is relevant to anyone who works with people at any level.

About this event

This training course is being held 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 goon to do all three sessions.

You must complete Session 1 to be eligible to attend Session 2, and complete Session 2 to be eligible to attend Session 3.
