Training and Professional Development

Highly effective training builds relationships and encourages reflection. It is responsive to the needs of adult learners, founded in strong content, informed by current research and clinical evidence, engaging, interactive, inspiring, informative and useful. Training is most likely to impact practice when it is reinforced with on-site support or via ongoing in-person or distance learning opportunities. Relationships established in training workshops can provide models for effective workplace relationships. When training participants experience safe, supportive, respectful and responsive interactions, it can help them recognize how powerfully relationships can support learning and growth. This awareness enables participants to develop the knowledge and skills to create such relationships with colleagues and families.
