Our Connecting with People training modules combine compassion and governance to improve individual emotional resilience, increase empathy, reduce stigma and enhance participants ability to provide a safe, compassionate and appropriate response to patients experiencing suicidal thoughts and/or self-harm.
A number of our modules are suitable for Primary Care settings, however our ‘Suicide Awareness and Suicide Response for Primary Care’ module has been purposefully developed to address the specific needs of suicide mitigation within Primary Care settings and meet training recommendations for best practice.
Suicide cannot be accurately predicted and Connecting with People training promotes the paradigm shift away from ineffective attempts to predict risk at an individual level, often as a means of allocating or excluding from care, to the adoption of a compassionate, holistic, trauma-informed and collaborative approach.
Connecting with People training uses a compassionate approach to learning, that is pragmatic and suitable for busy, time-poor services. We focus on the delegate experience which is immersive, empowering, inclusive and values based. Our training style uses facilitation, lecture-style presentation, open discussion and group-work to remove unconscious barriers, improve compassion, knowledge and confidence.
We’ve received considerable national and international recognition for our Connecting with People training and are delighted that a significant number of STP’s, CCG’s, PHE and council organisations across the UK, as well as parallel organisations internationally have successfully adopted our approach
We offer a number of Connecting with People modules, designed to embed knowledge of best practice and meet identified training objectives for real-life impact and improvement of individual and organisational working practices.
