Three Steps to Positive Practice Seminar

The Social Care Council is pleased to host the Lunchtime Seminar: ‘Three Steps to Positive Practice: A rights-based approach when considering and reviewing the use of restrictive interventions.’

Taking place on Monday, 10 December, the Social Care Council offices in Millennium House, Belfast, the seminar has proved to be so popular that it’s already oversubscribed, with a waiting list in operation. We are exploring if we can re-run the seminar in early 2019, so watch this space for further updates.

Delivering the seminar will be: Rosaline Kelly, Royal College of Nursing NI; Dr Heather Hanna, Consultant Psychiatrist; Adele Boyd, Independent Social Work Practitioner and BASW NI Committee Member.

“Three Steps to Positive Practice” is a process to guide professional practice and ensure staff remain up to date with the changes and developments in legislation and guidance regarding restrictive interventions and a rights-based approach in any health and social care context.

Key areas covered include how to:
  •  Develop an improved understanding of what makes a practice restrictive;
  •  Provide a framework for practice that embeds a rights-based approach and puts the person at the centre of decision-making processes;
  •  Understand the importance of working within legal, ethical and professional accountability frameworks;
  •  Understand the “Three Steps to Positive Practice” process and what a rights-based approach means;
  •  Reflect on a number of case studies, identifying where the “Three Steps to Positive Practice” framework could be implemented.

Three Steps to Positive Practice is endorsed by the Royal College of Psychiatry; the Royal College of Nursing; the British Association of Social Work; and the College of Occupational Therapy.
