Conflict Management / De-Escalation Training

conflict-management

Our Conflict Management training is designed for anyone who has to communicate effectively, be that with members of the public in situations where people may not act in a normal or expected way or with colleagues where challenging circumstances can arise.

It is not personal safety training, so please do not expect any throws, holds or ninja style moves.  This is in depth training that enables people to communicate effectively and to recognise and respond appropriately to danger signals etc.

The aim of the training is ‘to equip those attending the training to respond appropriately in confrontational or potentially confrontational situations.’

Delegates will learn about the common causes of conflict, they will learn about different types and styles of communication. They will learn about how to recognise and differentiate between ‘warning’ and ‘danger’ signs; they will also learn about ‘impact factors’. They will then learn how they can use this knowledge to keep themselves and others as safe as possible.

Delegates will be able to give examples of how communication might break down, they will also be able to describe strategies on how to minimise the risk of this happening and how to mitigate it if it does.  Delegates will then be given an opportunity to practice their new found skills in a safe learning environment in scenarios based on your particular needs.

The training is designed around a framework of 6 hours contact time. This can be tailored to your needs, for example, we have delivered it across three lots of 2 hour evening events over three weeks in the past. Our flexible approach to bespoke course design and pricing means that we can extend this programme for your specific needs.

Our flexible approach is focused on the principle of making training bespoke to the varying needs of each organisation we support. This allows redesigning knowledge elements to deliver them as a distance learning package at the VLE, our Virtual Learning Environment.  Tell us your needs and we will provide a solution.

We can also add an exciting ‘Forum Theatre’ style event at the conclusion of the day that gives delegates a safe way in which to practice their new skills.

Personal Style Inventory

personal-style-inventoryDo you want to know more about yourself and how you make key decisions in all aspects of your life?

Would you like to take part in an engaging and interactive experience that will help build confidence and productivity in your team?

Then the Personal Style Inventory course for you! Our experienced facilitators will guide you through the exploration process.

Based on the work of Carl Jung and Myers Briggs the PSI course is informative and fun.

What sets the PSI apart? Other Jungian instruments assess respondents’ behaviour, which can be affected by external factors such as work environment. The PSI captures behavioural preferences, which we believe more accurately measures a respondent’s personality strengths and weaknesses.

Learning Outcomes
Identify preference for one of 16 personality styles
Explore the potential strengths and weaknesses of each personality style
Understand how each style is likely to affect other individuals and/or group members
Discover how to capitalise on strengths of others

Theory
The PSI is based on Carl Jung’s theory of personality types. Jung found recognisable and repeated patterns in behaviours linked to our conscious perceiving of the world, our decision-making about the world, our attitudes toward life and our relationship to the expectations of the world. These patterns, for almost all of the people Jung observed or read about fell into 1 of several pairs of reactions. We all engage in all of these behaviours but almost always engage in only 1 of each pair with any facility.

The pairs of reactions — or personal style preferences — include:
Extraversion or Introversion
Sensing or Intuiting
Thinking or Feeling
Perceiving or Judging

The PSI vs. the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator
Both the PSI and the MBTI use Jungian theory to measure personality style. However, each instrument asks the individual to assume a different frame of reference. The MBTI attempts to measure how people usually behave. The PSI measures how people would prefer to behave. We believe this unveils a style closer to the true nature of the individual’s personality style.

How does it work?
Individuals respond to a series of 32 statements, each describing a behaviour associated with 1 of the 4 pairs of personal style preferences. A trained facilitator will then lead the session. The result is a personality style preference profile that is abbreviated by a combination of four letters (i.e. ISTP = Introverted/Sensing/Thinking/Perceiving).

A powerful tool for both individuals and teams, the PSI also includes a chart for recording team member personality types, questions for team discussion and detailed instructions for developing a team profile and conducting a complete workshop.

Uses for the PSI
The PSI is effective when used as a stand-alone learning instrument or as part of a more comprehensive training programme. It’s the perfect start to a style-awareness training program or to programmes for:

Personal Style
Communication
Diversity
Team-Building

AoFAQ Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (QCF)

first-aid-for-babies-and-childrenWhat is the Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid Course?

Here at Evince™ Training we are very excited about delivering the The AoFAQ Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (QCF) qualification.

This regulated first aid qualification is specific to infants aged under one year old, and children aged from 1 year old to the onset of puberty.

 

This 2 Day course fulfils the requirements of the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as issued by the department for Education and Skills Foundation Stage relating to Early Years childcare.

What will we be doing?

We will train you to be prepared for paediatric emergencies that could strike at any time.  Whilst such emergencies are thankfully rare we will raise your awareness to provide vital support while waiting for professional paramedic treatment.  We want you to be reassured that any steps you take will follow the right approach.  We will work with mannequins so that you can get hands-on experience.  Preparing to provide paediatric first aid necessarily requires a very different approach to supporting adults.  Approaches to urgently supporting adults you may have picked up over the years are very unlikely to help babies and children, in fact real harm could be done.  We will provide you with simple, appropriate treatments for babies and children.  We anticipate that we will de-bunk the odd myth as well.

Evince Training Limited is extremely proud to be an authorised centre offering AoFAQ Regulated First Aid Qualifications. The fact that our courses marked with (QCF) are regulated by Ofqual, the Government’s office for qualifications, gives you confidence in our attention to detail and commitment to achieving and maintaining the highest standards. You also have the reassurance that by choosing our regulated courses you have complied with the employers requirement to exercise ‘due diligence’ placed on you by the HSE.

What do you get at the end?

This is a regulated level 3 qualification and is ideal for anyone who works with or comes into contact with infants and children in their working or voluntary roles. It is also ideal for parents and families with young children who would like to learn first aid for their own peace of mind.

Further Training Available! The learner can progress to a range of qualifications with us including:

AoFAQ Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work
AoFAQ Level 2 Award in CPR and AED
AoFAQ Level 2 National Award in Safeguarding Children and Young People
