CAMHS - Introduction to Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy has been used in Clinical Services for over 30 years and now has a strong evidence base for these populations. In more recent years the skills taught in DBT (how to tolerate distress, how to regulate emotions and how to manage relationships) have been applied to a school setting to good effect (Haskell et al., 2014; Mazza & Hanson, 2014; Miller et al., 2014).
Connect 5 Session 1 - Brief Mental Wellbeing Advice
Connect 5 Session 1 session is practical and interactive, involves a PowerPoint presentation, large group discussion, small group work and exercises in pairs. Additional information is provided after the session in an electronic format.
The three sessions which make up the Connect 5 Training Programme are accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH). The Programme teaches evidence based techniques, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) self-management skills, which attendees can pass on, through wellbeing conversations.
Depending on how much one-to-one work you do with people experiencing poor mental wellbeing, you might find it useful to attend all three of the Connect 5 training sessions, just session 1, or just sessions 1 and 2.
If you plan to attend more than one of the Connect 5 sessions, then you must attend them in numerical order, as each builds on the previous one. We recommend that the time between each Connect 5 session you attend, is not more than six months.
