Our free, evidence-based, RSPH approved training helps practitioners to:

  • Understand the emotional dimension of change, the links between behaviour, feelings and needs and the power of empathy as a catalyst for change

  • Adopt a partnership approach to work with families, using a strength-based and solution-focused approach to explore family lifestyle issues and support lifestyle behaviour change

  • Gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to provide effective support and information in relation to the 5 elements of a healthy start in life: parenting skills, eating and lifestyle habits, nutrition, physical activity and emotional well-being in the family

  • Be able to provide clear messaging around healthy nutrition and physical activity for babies and young children consistent with national guidance

  • You do not need to deliver a group programme as a result of attending this training - training is for personal development only.
