Background to New Maudsley Carer Skills:

In 2019, Harriet Parsons, Training and Development Manager, was trained by Gillian Todd, in delivering the New Maudsley Skills Workshops. These workshops focus on building carer’s skills to tackle common issues such as

  • Dealing with challenging behaviour
  • Specialised communication skills
  • Avoiding traps that may maintain the disorder
  • Supporting recovery

These workshops will focus on practical application of skills, building on the knowledge and insight carers have gained through the PiLaR programme.

These practical workshops will be limited to 20 participants, and will involve group work. It is important that participants commit to attending all workshops.
