What is Conversations Inviting Change?

CIC 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 plenty of facilitated small groups sessions to enable participants to practice CIC and enhance their interactional skills using “real-play” case studies and clinical scenarios brought by participants.

The course tutors are physiotherapists and CIC accredited trainers. 

The PPA are passionate about developing support in this important area of practice and skills development and want to support therapists to become more confident applying these skills clinically. In collaboration with John Launer and the CIC team we are really pleased to offer this exciting introductory CIC course. More information is available here https://conversationsinvitingchange.com.

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