The idea of individuals' 'readiness to change' is often talked about in services, as they are often supporting people to make various changes to the way they think, feel or behave. Professionals' views about whether somebody is ready to change can influence whether and which support is given, referrals are made, or services accessed.
This webinar will explore the idea of 'readiness to change' and will include:
- A presentation of recent research into frontline homelessness workers' ideas about readiness to change in the people they support. This will include the limitations of traditional models of 'readiness to change' when thinking about people who experience multiple disadvantage and how we might more helpfully think about readiness to change when supporting these individuals.
- Views from individuals who have been supported by services to change.
- Opportunities to reflect on your own practice in small groups of three, as well as whole-group discussion
Audience: This webinar is aimed at professionals and volunteers from all sectors who come across clients facing homelessness and other disadvantages, such as substance misuse, domestic abuse or contact with the criminal justice system.
