MHFA Tools for Coaches
New dates coming Autumn 2022
This workshop, specifically designed for coaches, is devised to follow on from the Mental Health First Aid (Adult) course and is a standalone programme. It has been validated by the Association for Coaching CPD Hours Scheme.
The workshop explores:
- The interface and boundaries between coaching and mental health counselling
- The spectrum of mental health norms and epidemiology of mental illnesses in our community
- Impact of mental health difficulties on businesses, individuals and families
- Key features of a range of common mental health conditions, as presented in a range of Case Studies.
- A review of a range of tools to deploy with clients in seeking to identify who may benefit from an onward referral to a mental health professional for diagnostic investigation.
- Worked example of deployment of assessment tools by coaches.
What to expect:
We limit numbers to a maximum of 25 people per cohort. Learning takes place through a mix of presentation, case studies and group discussions. While participants would normally be expected to have completed the Mental Health First Aider programme and be currently on the register of MH First Aiders, this is not a requirement.
