About this Event
As part of the YFLN training offer, we are running Experiential Learning Days, where you can learn about and get trained in a topic AND have a bit of a deep dive into how one of the YFLN organisation works. These are always in person events, and PHF will cover travel and accommodation as needed.
Reboot West is a project which is part of 1625 Independent People, which support 16-25y/o care experienced young people to obtain and sustain education, employment and training (EET). We do this through offering long term 1:1 therapeutic support using techniques from Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT), a developmental model designed to increase psychological flexibility in young people.
DNA-V (Discoverer, Noticer, Advisor & Values) is the youth model of ACT.
Reboot West has adapted DNA-V techniques and created an experiential training programme, and resources under the ‘Better conversations with DNA-V’ brand, to use in community settings, and designed for support workers, key workers, social care workers, coaches, psychologists and therapists - anyone who wants to work more effectively with young people aged 16-25, in community settings, and guide them towards thriving and vitality in their life.
The full training course provides you with an understanding of the DNA-V model, the different approaches within the model and how to use it in practice. The training is delivered experientially so you as a learner will be asked to engage with your own thoughts, feelings, behaviours and values as a way of fully understanding the benefits of the practice.
You will leave with a good understanding of how to be more psychologically flexible in your own life as well as how to enable the young people you are working with to develop psychological flexibility.
