Holding onto Hope Training course

Course Outline

The aim of the Holding onto Hope course is to help carers feel more confident and empowered in their role, to reduce their anxiety, and improve communication lines in the family, ultimately helping them best support their loved one on their path towards recovery.

It aims to do this by:

• Strengthening carers’ beliefs in their abilities to make change possible

• Giving carers the opportunity to express concerns about the illness

• Discussing the basic principles of behaviour change

• Teaching communication skills (ability to express & process emotions)

• Promoting respect, satisfaction, and a unified approach within the family

• Maximizing carers skills (warmth with limits and boundaries)

• Highlighting factors which may be aggravating the problem

• Teaching the skills of problem solving
