Code: PCC/21/358 Lite Making Every Contact Count (MECC) Conversation Skills for Social Workers & ISA's (Virtual Online)

Lite Making Every Contact Count (MECC) Conversation Skills

 

Making Every Contact Count (MECC) is a Royal Society of Public Health accredited course and is about supporting you to make the most of every opportunity you have with the people you come into contact with every day to make a change.

The Making Every Contact Counts approach helps to ensure you are able to make a difference to the clients you work with by encouraging and supporting them to change behaviours that may be damaging to their health and wellbeing.

Who is the training suitable for?

Social Workers and ISA's that have completed their Strength Based Training are encouraged to attend MECC. In 'usual times' MECC would consist of two sessions delivered face to face, however, due to the pandemic this can't take place. In response to this MECC Lite is being delivered in one session and has been adapted to be delivered virtually. The session is three hours long and is very interactive.

This course is a virtual course run via Zoom or Teams - please add the date into your calendar, joining instructions will be sent to you a week before the course date.

Work can be rich with opportunity. Through work we can learn and grow, develop and contribute, build our careers, earn our living and provide for our family. It can also be challenging, demanding and exhausting; never more so than in having to adapt recently to the profound changes brought about by Covid-19.


Everyone has to cope with the stresses and strains of work and everyday life, you will have developed coping mechanisms that help you deal with familiar adverse situations and many unfamiliar ones. Some of your coping mechanisms however, aren't so effective and can sometimes make situations worse. What separates those who can hold their own and keep going in times of adversity is a cluster of habits that centre on resilience. This workshop will explore what resilience is and the habits that strengthen your resilience enabling you to:


• Deal with pressure and handle stress
• Maintain your motivation and engagement
• Develop and sustain self-esteem
• Bounce back from set-backs and disappointments
• Transform your work life
