Psychosocial factors and interventions

2 days course

The term psychosocial refers to the influence of social factors on an individual’s mind or behaviour and to the interrelation of behaviour and social factors.

The psychosocial process is about the way in which social reality is perceived and experienced psychologically and behaviourally by the individual and how it in turn affects that reality.

Psychosocial interventions can be to directly address the social factors (for example, by helping someone to find accommodation, job etc) and/or address the psychological results that further reduce the ability to deal and resolve the social factors (for example, low self esteem, low self efficacy, poor resilience, poor coping skills, lack of support)

Course aims:

  • Introduce an overview of psychosocial approaches and research.
  • Introduce and summarise psychosocial factors that predict poor behaviour change results (risk factors) and those that predict high behaviour change results (facilitative factors)
  • Introduce basic principles of working with groups, families and couples when appropriate and in relation to increasing facilitative factors.
  • Introduce and practice psychosocial tools and skills to use when working with clients including:

    - Referral to appropriate agencies and services

    - Developing resilience

    - Developing coping skills

    - Developing problem solving skills

    - Increasing self esteem, self control and self efficacy

    - Identifying and accessing support.
  • Examine application to participants work.
