Aims & Objectives

This one day course considers different potential stages of a person’s dementia journey but, unlike previous models of training, looks at these in a more tailored, person-centred way.  The training uses the concept of “Crystals” to illustrate how the journey may differ from person to person, based on the type of dementia diagnosis and where in the brain the damage is occurring.

Abuka are members of “DEEP” and the Alzheimer’s Society, and this training has been built on lived experience of people living with dementia and their carers.  Reference is also made to “Good Work:  A Dementia Learning and Development Framework for Wales” and the Social Services and Well Being (Wales) Act 2014, which details best practice for understanding dementia and its effects.

Aims and objectives:

Mental health first aid (MHFA) is the initial help given to someone experiencing a mental health problem before professional help is obtained. Participants learn an approach to help them in a mental health crisis situation to remain calm and confident.  They will also learn how to respond in the most appropriate way.  These actions will make a difference and determine how quickly a person gets help or recovers. The aims of MHFA are:

  • to preserve life where a person may be a danger to themselves or others
  • to provide help to prevent the mental health problem developing into a more serious state
  • to promote the recovery of good mental health
  • to provide comfort to a person experiencing a mental health problem.

MHFA does not teach people to be therapists.  However, it does teach people:

  • how to recognise the symptoms of mental health problems
  • how to provide initial help
  • how to guide a person towards appropriate professional help

Young People and the Mental Capacity Act

This course is designed to enable practitioners working with young people to develop their knowledge and skills in relation to the application of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (‘the MCA 2005’) to their work. The MCA 2005 will be relevant to young people aged 16 and over who lack capacity to make decisions for themselves, as well as parents who lack capacity to make decisions in relation to their children.

  • Improved their knowledge and understanding of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 generally and, in particular, its application to under 18s
  • Considered how to apply that knowledge to their practice
  • Discussed relevant legal and practice issues

Deprivation of Liberty in Children and Young People

This course aims to update staff working with children, young people and those in transition with the latest case law and developments in relation to deprivation of liberty. The course will consider these developments and their impact on practice. It examines the Supreme Court ruling on deprivation of liberty and considers practical issues in its application for children and young people.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • Understand the ‘presumption of capacity’ from age 16; the overlap with parental responsibility until the age of 18 and how this differs to consent provided for children under 16
  • Understand the supreme court ruling and it’s application to those aged under 18
  • Identify when a deprivation of liberty may be occurring and how to make it lawful
