The Bouverie Centre regularly runs short courses on a range of practical topics with the aim of assisting helping professionals to engage more skilfully with clients and their families.
All of our training is informed by a set of core principles. They are:
1. Maintaining respectful, collaborative relationships with everyone; trainees and families alike
2. Learning by doing and teaching in a way that reflects theories and practices taught
3. Assuming that trainees (and families) come to us with existing skills and strengths gained from previous educational, work and personal experiences
4. Creating a safe environment for trainees to be able to locate ideas and practices historically and culturally, and to critique them in robust ways

Great to spend a PD day with staff from others sectors and organisations.
Thank you for the valuable training. It actually fell at the exact time that I needed it! I am looking forward to going to work tomorrow and sharing all the great tips and info with my colleagues.
Thank you, excellent 2-day training. An approach in a timely manner that is more focused on outcomes and evaluating.
Day's pace was very good and good balance of theory and practice.
Engaging facilitators. Enjoyed the interaction and feedback was encouraging throughout the day.

Thank you! It can be applied across a range of fields. It was very approachable. Like building blocks. The readings are also great for later, I look forward to reading them!
This training has been very beneficial to assist me in my role with young people & their families. I now feel more confident to involve the families and also engage parents who present with reluctance.
Thank you. It has been great. It was a really good presentation. Made narrative simple and clear for me and able to apply in my work.
