Training

To book a 'closed' training just for your team, please ring 0121 296 4448 or email solihull.approach@uhb.nhs.uk and we will create a bespoke order form for you. For individuals, please go to 'Book an individual training place'.

All practitioners start with our 2 Day Foundation training, to introduce them to the Solihull Approach and how it can be used in their daily work on a one-to-one basis.

The Keeping Trauma in Mind Solihull Approach training is designed for any practitioner working predominantly with adult clients or service users from any agency.

This training aims to introduce practitioners to the Solihull Approach model as applied to working with adult clients. To introduce practitioners to Trauma, make links between relational trauma and mental health diagnoses, and understand how the Solihull Approach model is relevant to supporting service users who have experienced trauma in their lives.

The Solihull Approach introduces a model for understanding the impact of relationships on health and wellbeing and the impact of adverse childhood experiences on health and wellbeing. It supports effective and consistent approaches across agencies as a shared framework.

The training is for 12 people at a time, and is suitable for Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Community Psychiatric Nurses, Mental Health Workers, Social Workers, Support Workers, Project Workers, Housing Officers, Probation Officers, Community Police and others to help practitioners develop an understanding of key concepts that are central to thinking about relationships. The Solihull Approach underpins and supports all models of therapy by focussing on the building blocks for healthy relationships, so that specific techniques can be more effective.

Occasionally, training is run for individuals.

There are two weeks between Day 1 and Day 2 to enhance theory into practice.

Each delegate will need a relevant Supporting Information Booklet at £10 each (included in the cost of training for individuals). We also encourage practitioners to have access to a more comprehensive Resource Pack (for example the School Years Resource Pack). This encourages further reading about the model and its application, enhancing theory into practice. The Resource Packs include photocopiable handouts for adults who are parents.

We have found that in order to support professionals’ continued use of the Solihull Approach model and to move theory into practice, it is vital to put into place a plan for ongoing support before the training begins, see Embedding the Solihull Approach. Many areas have found a variety of ways of providing support, see Solihull Approach in Use. Some areas put on their own series of 4 Work Discussion sessions after the 2 Day Foundation training or you can commission them from us for an area or individuals can attend one that we put on.
