Voice Collective's free 3-day training in Group Facilitation

About this Event

PLEASE NOTE: This is a 3-day training course. It runs from 10am - 4pm on Thursday 12th, Friday 13th & Monday 16th March 2020.

This innovative and interactive 3-day course will help you to develop the skills necessary to launch and co-facilitate a Voice Collective peer support group for young people under the age of 19 within your organisation.

It combines personal and professional experience to cover the following areas:

  • Understanding ‘hearing voices’ and other related experiences
  • Making sense of different models of understanding these experiences
  • Developing a toolbox of coping strategies to support young people in their recovery
  • Setting up, launching and sustaining a Voice Collective peer support group
  • Practical skills for group facilitation
  • Managing challenging situations in groups

Who is the course for?

This course is aimed at those already familiar with the Voice Collective ethos and approach to voice-hearing, and who intend to use their learning to launch and facilitate Voice Collective peer support groups within their organisations. This could include: psychologists, youth workers, support workers, nurses, therapists, OTs, social workers, mentors & more.

Young people (aged 16+) with lived experience of voices/visions, and who wish to train to co-facilitate groups, are particularly encouraged. We welcome joint applications between workers and young people.

Important Information:

This course is open to people who support and/or work with children and young people (in a variety of settings, including the home). If you do not currently support or work with children and young people, we may not be able to accept your booking.

We cannot accept group bookings - each attendee must register themselves and provide their contact details in case of emergencies.

As our courses are often oversubscribed, please book your place only if you are confident you are able to attend for the full three days.

If you are unable to make the course, please cancel your place as early as possible to avoid spaces going to waste, by emailing info@voicecollective.co.uk.
