Event description

Description

Talk for Health is a social enterprise that believes everyone benefits from the opportunity to talk, to share, and to give as well as receive support.

Through initial 4.5 day peer-counselling programmes, Talk for Health aims to provide people with the skills to talk more openly and truthfully, to listen empathetically, and to gain basic counselling skills.

Graduates go on to join ongoing support groups called 'Chair & Share Groups' where they connect, share, and support each other using the guidelines and skills learnt on the initial programme. These are usually chaired by Talk for Health graduates who have completed the 1-day Train the Chair training.

This one day training with Nicky Forsythe is designed to give you an introduction to peer group facilitation in general as well as the Talk for Health model and style of peer group facilitation.

Themes that will be explore in this interactive workshop are:

  • What does great peer group facilitation look, sound and feel like

  • Group process and evolution and the role of the facilitator at each stage

  • Leadership styles for peer group facilitators

  • Psychological processes that effect peer group dynamics and the role of the facilitator

  • Emotional state management for facilitators

  • Peer support groups: the Talk for Health way

The workshop is designed to allow you to learn through practical activities and the sharing of your thoughts, ideas and feedback with others.

There will be a lot of time allocated to offering participants the opportunity to put knowledge and skills gained into practice.

This is an essential training if you are interested to develop into the role of Volunteer Chair & Share Facilitator.

This trainig is FREE but is limited to 30 people and is open to Talk for Health Graduates and Others. If you are NOT a Talk for Health Graduate you must complete an applcation form so please email info@talkforhealth.co.uk or call/text 07826148461 to receive the application.
