Early bird tickets for our 2019 open ABLE training course in Cork are now available.
Designed to support Ireland’s frontline health and social care practitioners, our ABLE training (Adopt a relational approach, Build, Listen and Empower) helps practitioners to build more responsive relationships with their clients.
The CPD approved, evidence-based training gives doctors, nurses, social care workers and other healthcare practitioners the skills to listen actively and reflectively and to empathise, relate and respond appropriately to individuals, while attending to their own wellbeing.
Our ABLE courses will run over three dates in Cork at Northridge House Education, Training & Research Centre in Blackrock on 26th February, and 12th and 13th March.
A limited number of early bird subsidised places are now available at a reduced rate via Eventbrite:
Dr Maeve Hurley, founder of Ag Eisteacht, said: “We know that most practitioners want to help and support their clients, and that they recognise the quality of their relationships with their clients as a key component of improved outcomes.
“However, the reality is that time pressures, uncertainty around boundaries, outcome expectations and the validity of spending time offering clients space to share their worries or concerns can limit one’s ability to respond appropriately.
“This is where our ABLE training can help. It has been specifically designed to provide practitioners with the knowledge, understanding and skills to help them to become more reflective and more present and attuned.”
We have trained over 2,000 frontline practitioners to date working in services such as the health, education, probation, youth, child & family, disability and homeless services.
Dr Hurley said: “ It’s understandable if a practitioner feels anxious, overwhelmed or uncertain if a client or patient turns to them for help in times of transition or need. Our ABLE model gives them the framework to use those ‘moments of opportunity’ to empower clients and help them to think about ways in which they might nurture quality relationships in their own lives, build core life skills or reduce stress.
“ This can make a big difference to individuals’ long-term health and well-being – and to practitioners’ confidence and ability to support.”
