Presentations

Dawn Bennett and Andrea Daykin

Implementing, Adapting and Researching the 5 session Approach

Dawn will outline the 5-session approach and say how people can adapt it. She will describe its aims, stages and illustrate some of its components, clarifying the difference between this approach and doing therapy. Andrea will share her experience of applying this approach in a probation setting, describing how managers and offenders experienced this way of working. Some challenges for researchers in this area will be described.

In the afternoon, the group can continue to discuss this theme in relation to participants’ own services or can consider a therapy audiotape to discuss skills involved in therapeutic work. The day will be shaped to meet participants’ interests.
