The Connecting People team have produced some training materials which can be used by practitioners to understand more about the model. They can also be used in formal training sessions or team meetings to discuss the practice in more depth. Alternatively, these resources are available for use as continuing professional development.

The materials have been organised around questions which practitioners may ask about different aspects of the Connecting People Intervention Model.

Accompanying each question is a short film clip with practitioners talking about the issue and a downloadable training exercise. It is best to view the film clip first and then use the training exercise individually or in facilitated groups.  The following video introduces the training and practice guidance:
