Code: PCC/22/157 PREVENT Training

Prevent is part of the UK's counter terrorism strategy. This workshop will help participants to identify the issues and preventative measures from the Government strategy aimed at tackling the radicalisation of individuals, both in the UK and elsewhere (stopping people from becoming a terrorist or supporting terrorists or violent extremists).

The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 places a legal duty on the local authority to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This includes ensuring frontline staff have a good understanding of Prevent and how to refer when concerns are raised.

  • Emotional awareness
  • Self-esteem
  • Anger management

Code: PCC/22/604 Healthy Conversation Skills - Behaviour Change

Hi ! How are you?

There seems to be a misconception around 'helping people' and a tendency to move towards specific training that is overly complicated, sometimes daunting and often ends up sitting on the 'shelf' - The Healthy Conversation Skills training aims to de-mystify the art of 'giving help' and build confidence in everyone.

This 3 hour, fully interactive virtual training is designed to encourage and support the philosophy behind Making Every Contact Count (MECC) with added peer support, networking opportunities and a desire to implement what they learn in their daily lives


We all have a shared responsibility to be healthy in the conversations we have with our residents/customers and each other. We need to invest time in the development of our skills now while there is a collective consideration of health and inequality made so evident in the current pandemic.

If people are empowered to be proactive and opportunistic in their approach to helping others with more complex issues like mental health and sexual health: they will need to be confident in having a basic conversation; using reflection, open discovery questions and a person centred, asset based approach.
