The Facilitator Training Kit includes the revised two part Training Manual and Course Textbook.
The manual includes a practical step-by-step guide that describes in detail the course for facilitating the Family Partnership Foundation Course, and is needed by anyone wishing to teach the course.
It contains all the information facilitators might need regarding the theoretical and service background underlying the approach, relevant research and the development and evaluation of associated services.
It includes the principles and methods of teaching, photocopyable handouts and information and methods about routine evaluation and supervision.
The facilitators’ manual is restricted to people with a mental health background, including psychologists, psychiatrists and counsellors. It is also available to other professionals (for example paediatric occupational therapists) who have trained as Parent Advisers. See below for details.
