Training Sessions: (2016 and 2017)
Initial Training consists of two half-day training sessions in positive behaviour support for family carers, which will be held in a number of locations all around Scotland.
These sessions will provide you with practical support and advice that you can use right away back in the family home. You will also have the opportunity to hear from other family carers in a supportive and relaxed atmosphere.
