Event Organiser

The PPA are proud to be offering another opportunity to complete an Introductory Course in Conversations Inviting Change.

Conversations Inviting Change (CIC) is a narrative-based approach to encounters in health and social care that can enrich all professional work.

This course is suited to participants who are:

  1. A qualified clinician currently working with a clinical caseload in any clinical area or in a management role (you don’t have to be a physio to apply)
  2. Able to commit to participate to attend all course sessions

The Introductory course will be held over three Wednesday evenings from 6pm -8pm via Zoom:

  • 5th October
  • 19th October
  • 2nd November

Book your place here.

After the success of these courses and participant feedback we are excited to be collaborating again with CIC and are offering a third introductory course, with the opportunity to attend 2 guided practice sessions in 2023. These sessions can be booked here:

What is CIC?

It is based on the simple idea that everyone, whether as a patient, client, learner or colleague, can benefit from having opportunities to reflect on their professional experiences and being skilfully questioned about these.

CIC can be applied to a variety of situations;

  • person centred consultations with individuals and families
  • supervision, coaching and mentoring
  • conflict resolution
  • training in reflective practice and professionalism, active learning sets and collaborative learning groups
  • leadership and management

This course will be experiential with facilitated small groups sessions to enable participants to practise CIC and enhance their interactional skills using “real-play” case studies and clinical scenarios brought by participants

The course tutors are CIC accredited trainers with considerable experience in delivering CIC courses.

The PPA are passionate about developing supporting therapists to become more confident in applying these skills clinically. In collaboration with John Launer and the CIC team we are really pleased to offer this exciting introductory CIC course.

If you’ve attended the monthly PPA peer reflecting group session you will be familiar with the CIC reflective team model used. This course will provide a chance to both learn and practice to help you to become confident and embed these skills into daily practice.

What others have said.....

Very helpful group I can see how this can be used with patients that are struggling with change but also colleague challenges’.

‘Consideration of how to use the person's language and SOS questions to allow the person time to reflect and consider their own challenges and resources’

It was useful to learn clear ways to questions individuals to try and encourage them to think about ways of dealing with difficult situations’
