The Decider & The Decider Life Skills Workshops

THE DECIDER WORKSHOPS
THE DECIDER: A SKILLS MANUAL contains 32
CBT & DBT based skills for individuals and groups with mental
health problems. The Decider: A Skills Manual is suitable for those
who work with adults and young people with moderate to severe
mental health problems, including child/adolescent mental health
services, high intensity primary care, and secondary care mental
health services.
The manual and workshops are for all trained and untrained
mental health professionals, including nurses, nursing and health care assistants, social
workers, psychologists and psychological therapists, occupational therapists,
psychiatrists. Learn more about The Decider: A Skills Manual or purchase a copy now
via the order page.
THE DECIDER SKILLS WORKSHOPS
run over TWO full days, starting
with an introduction about The Decider and The Lifejacket Metaphor on the first half day.
Michelle and Carol then demonstrate how they teach and present the 32 skills. The
workshop is fun, creative and innovative - and probably very unlike anything you've
attended before!
The aim is to demonstrate to clinicians how they can use the skills effectively within their
professional practice, whether in groups or with individual clients. Inevitably,
participants will also find themselves using the skills in their own personal lives.
Participants at previous workshops have included: mental health nurses, social workers,
occupational therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, probation staff, therapists, trainees
and support workers.
We recommend that at least 2 individuals from a team attend the training together.
We come to you to deliver the training. You provide the teaching room, participants
and refreshments.
Trusts and organisations are welcome to contact us to arrange a workshop. The inhouse workshops accommodate 40 attendees. All attendees receive a copy of The
Decider: A Skills Manual
