This presentation will describe the multi-dimensional philosophy and application principles. In addition, current and past PROMPT evidence based research will be reviewed.

Description:

This session will discuss the background to project-based treatment, where a person with ABI works collaboratively towards a common goal (or project), providing a meaningful, engaging and motivating environment. We will report the results from a feasibility study involving 21 people with ABI who were involved in projects designed to improve their communication skills and quality of life. We will discuss the treatment design, communication goal setting, and present a single-case study of one of the participants.

Description:

This stand-alone workshop is a fast paced quick-fire 60 minute session, reflecting on the learning from Friday’s presentation, and growing and developing the ideas and themes from the day before.

The structure and content of the session will prove equally as useful for those new to this conversation, as for those who previously attended the Friday workshop.

Friday workshop
( Friday 24th March 1 - 4.30pm)

Managing! ....Yourself, Your Practice and Others - creatively, insightfully, dynamically

A dynamic high energy interactive experiential workshop-presentation exploring, and actioning, the themes of growing, refining and developing a private
health practice – including managing oneself emotionally effectively and healthily - looking at techniques for self-care, effective communication, leadership and marketing skills.

Facilitated by Darren Cheek, this workshop-presentation will serve as a creative, much-needed, safe and supportive environment, in which practitioners can exchange questions, concerns, ideas and inspirations. With focused practical, problem-solving activities, alongside skills and idea-sharing, the session will include a selection of exercises, facilitated and group-led discussions, as well as a mixture of didacticism and reflections based on Darren’s own experiences of working in private practice - and as a freelance Artist, Events and Business Development Manager.

With insights from Leading Contemporary Leadership theories, Transactional Analysis, and Psychodynamic theories (applied to the health-practice/workplace), this creatively-fun and energised presentation will serve as an inspiring refresher for those looking for alternative and/or more traditional ways to infusing new life into their practice.
