ABLE Programme:

Ag Eisteacht are currently accepting bookings for our 3 day ABLE programme taking place in the Castletroy Park Hotel, Limerick beginning on the 10th of May (day 2 & 3 are on the 23rd & 24th of May). This training is designed to equip front-line practitioners with the skills, knowledge and confidence required to adopt a relational approach to their professional practice. ABLE is accredited by the IASW (Irish Association of Social Workers) as a CPD event and is approved by the NMBI (Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland) for 16.5 NMBI CEUs.

Following the three - day ABLE programme participants will be able to:

  • Use the skills of the brief intervention model ABLE in day to day practice to provide opportunities to clients and colleagues, to share concerns and challenges they face in establishing and / maintaining healthy and supportive relationships
  • Identify the challenges service users may have in building supportive relationships and gain insights into what their behaviour may mean using evidence based information
  • Incorporate mentalisation based skills (i.e. perceiving and interpreting human behaviour in terms of intentional mental states e.g. needs, desires, feelings, beliefs, goals, purposes, and reasons) into their work and outline how they will continue to develop these.

 Course participants have said: 

We really enjoyed the experience as communication is a very important and difficult part of our job. Great presenters

Both presenters were superb- wonderful therapeutic interaction style. Excellent models of reflective practice, models of empowerment & how families themselves can be agents of change

Very beneficial & practical. Essential for all practitioners to improve reflective centered listening, and ability to put relationships at the centre of what we do
