SafePath Solutions trainings are empowering, inspiring, and fun. We take an interactive, learn-by-doing approach, with exercises and “serious games” that accommodate participants’ own learning styles.
Training in SafePath Solutions starts with a two-day basic training for teams, followed by an implementation phase involving regular coaching and supervision, and a 6-month follow-up booster day. Our research shows that teams gradually learn SafePath Solutions over a period of about one year. Without the implementation process, whatever gains the teams make in the 2-day basic training are quickly lost.
The team receives regular coaching in SafePath Solutions every other week for one hour. We can provide a SafePath Solutions coach for your teams, or we can train some of your senior staff (e.g., psychologists or other mental health professionals) to become coaches through our “train-the-trainers” program. In either case, the idea is for your teams to eventually transition from external to internal coaching, so that your institution can maintain SafePath Solutions independently after one to two years of external support. We can discuss with you the best alternative for your organization.
The teams receive lots of support in the process of learning SafePath Solutions. We provide manuals for the team’s coaches and workbooks for the team members and patients. Furthermore, SafePath Solutions uses materials that we created to facilitate learning about schema modes: the iModes cards, which present schema modes in cartoon-form, and materials to create an iModes environment on the wards (e.g., posters, therapeutic playing cards).
