Engagement and Rapport
This course considers new research on how the therapeutic relationship with the client can be the primary resource that clients may use to help change their behaviour. This has major implications for how we engage and establish rapport with the people we see. This one day course looks at the implications of the new research and considers how it can be applied in day to day work.
Objectives. By the end of the course participants will be able to:-
- Assess their organisational practices to make sure they do not make it harder for clients to engage.
- Identify how the relationship with a client can be used to bring about change
- Describe ways of building on rapport with a client.
- Work towards ‘congruence’ between what they are trying to do and their methods.
- Assert appropriate boundaries
- Examine their current practice using reflective practice techniques
Minimum number of participants 15
Length 1day – 9:30 – 4:30 (or equivalent)
