Methods of Teaching/Learning
• The first two days will be delivered largely by workshops with group work to enable participants to learn and apply different approaches within positive person work. Role play will be used to demonstrate and practice risk assessment and interviewing technique. Resources of assessment tools and relevant reading will be distributed and discussed.
• The final day will be used for discussion, in supervision groups for each participant to discuss the use of positive person work with three specific clients who have dementia. This will include role playing an interview with that client where this will be helpful.
• Dates for five supervision groups following these three timetabled days at approximate intervals of three weeks will be set between the group, for the participants to continue sharing their current work with the clients and seek the support and guidance of the group in developing that care, applying person- centred care taught on the study day.
