What can you expect from this course:
During the first module, you will put the current deficit focused support systems, services, structures and processes that are in place to support people going through tough times under the microscope. You will consider how effective they really are and the impact they have on people.
You will be introduced to the Person-led, Transitional and Strength-based (PTS) Response, exploring its principles, its theory of change and the impact that working in this way can have on people. You will delve into why it’s important to change current systems and not just make things a bit better.
In module two you will dive deeper into the PTS Response, looking at the skills required to be a PTS Coach or like-minded Practitioner and how the PTS Principles can be used to inform practice. You will take a closer look at alternative approaches, the importance of continuous listening and reflection.
Lastly, but by no means least, you will explore how as a PTS Coach or like-minded Practitioner, you can actively contribute to and drive systems change by highlighting and overcoming barriers created by current systems.
In summary, this course is for kick-ass humans who want to make a change and aren’t afraid of going against the status quo!
