Thanks to the wonderful folks at Telford and Wrekin Council, the past week has absolutely blown by! What an attentive, engaging and motivated group of learners. Absolutely superb. Yet again I was blown away by their commitment to learn, participate and improve the lives of young people and families across Shropshire.
Motivational Interviewing is really making a difference to the lives of people in Telford and Wrekin and it is a testament to the council that the staff are embedding what they have learned and supporting families into real lifestyle changes. A big thank you to Marie Hatton, the Service Delivery Manager Children in Care and Leaving Care, for supporting me every step of the way and also a huge show of gratitude to the assembled learners who all knew that my Dad had died and took time to demonstrate real empathy and get me through a tough period of time.
Here is a sample of the 100% positive feedback:
“This training was fantastic and really informative, it really helped me to think about the work I do with families and how many times I ask questions and ‘fill the silences.’ I would recommend this training to all of my colleagues.” Amy
“This was a great course and I will take back the information that I learned and put it into practice.” Helen
“This is one of the best training courses I have ever been on. I felt engaged throughout.
