USING OUR MATERIALS

All our training materials are easy to use and come with full step by step manuals or guidance notes showing when and how to use each item. Whether the materials are for use in your own home, in 1-1 sessions with clients or with larger groups of course participants, this self-delivery feature means that you can use the resources as and when needed, without relying on external trainers. 

Family Help Packs

Our Anxiety and Bipolar Family Help Packs are best suited to individual and family situations, or as take home resources following a short training session. Numerous individuals who have purchased a single Anxiety Family Help Pack online have reported a significant benefit to themselves and their family from using it at home.

GPs could issue single family packs to their patients prior to medication (always subject to their medical opinion) or to stablise a situation whilst their patients are on waiting lists for other forms of mental health support. Health and other care organisations can simply purchase the packs for handing out to appropriate patients or clients, or they can use it as a handout when delivering their own sessions in-house.

The Anxiety Family Help Pack can also be used to support a short, powerful training session looking at why some people cannot identify where their anxiety comes from and why it keeps affecting and controlling their actions and thoughts. It also contains an infographic board exercise on “Understanding Anxiety” plus a very simple control technique to block out and control the anxiety attacks. At the end of the session a copy of the Family Pack is given to each participant. This enables them to use the pack as a referral point in the future or to help others in their family/social circle to understand their condition. A session for a group of up to twelve can be completed in an hour. Groups of up to 24 will take about an hour and a half to complete the session.

Comprehensive Training Packs

These more extensive packs are designed for larger group settings and each one contains sufficient materials to support the delivery of a course to 12 people, including the trainer’s own reusable copies of every item, plus 12 sets of handouts for participants.  Replacement handout packs can then be purchased to replenish the materials given away.  The Trainer’s materials will last for years and support hundreds of courses, delivering excellent value for money

There are 4 comprehensive training packs, each of which support different course lengths and structures:-

1   Anxiety & Depression – a nine hour course split into three 3 hour sessions

2   Anger Management – a six hour course split into two 3 hour sessions

3   Bipolar & Mood Scale – a nine hour course split into three 3 hour sessions

4   Confidence Building – a six hour course split into two 3 hour sessions

More details on these are given below.

1 Anxiety & Depression

The course is split into three sessions which are run one week apart (it is also very easy to break the course down into more but shorter sessions if required). A trainer’s manual is provided which covers everything from how to set up the room to get the best results, and what the trainer / facilitator needs to say throughout the course. The material has been developed to deliver the information in an easy to understand step by step process. It uses unique infographic boards throughout the course together with additional information sheets and other materials.

At the beginning of the course each participant is given an empty A4 ring binder folder. These folders are not supplied as part of the pack. As the course progresses all the information including lightweight versions of the infographic boards are handed out and filed into their personal folders.

At the end of the course each participant has a complete folder with everything covered during the course. The folder can be used for revision in the future or as way of explaining the condition to help others.

The course material is broken down into two components:

A   The trainers pack is designed to run courses for up to 12 people at a time and contains a trainer’s instruction manual, all the hard back infographic boards and other mateirals needed to delvier the full course. The high quality material will last for years and will deliver hundreds of courses as and when required.

B   The hand out pack contains 12 copies of everything, so that participants can take information home and discuss with family and work colleagues. A number of NHS Trusts, Mental Health Charities and other organisations have reported exceptional results with this training method. It is simply a matter of purchasing extra handout packs whenever a course is going to be run

2. ANGER MANAGEMENT

3. BIPOLAR & MOOD SCALE

4. CONFIDENCE BUILDING

These three courses all follow the same process as the Anxiety & Depression course except that the subject material changes. In the case of 2 & 4 they are reduced to a six hour course over two sessions.
