Supporting non-EEA destitute migrants - Bristol

Wednesday, 8 November 2017

This one day training course is designed to help front line workers from across the homelessness sector develop their understanding of non-EEA migrant destitution and homelessness. This course is delivered at a subsidised rate as part of the Strategic Alliance on Migrant Destitution, which is a unique cross sector project working across the refugee/migrant and homelessness sector. 

This course will give you the practical skills needed to help clients improve self awareness, build motivation and self-esteem, break free from unhelpful behavioural patterns, and take responsibility for their actions and choices.

A mixture of training methods is used on this course. You will explore typical problems faced by professionals that work with vulnerable people, such as the tendency to attribute “blame” on to others and resistance to pro-activity. The blend of approaches is designed to ensure that you will gain insights that are of immediate, practical use in your everyday working life.
