Skills for Health: working group update
The Skills for Health-sponsored consultation into the proposed future national occupational standards (NOS) for psychotherapy and counselling has moved into the working group phase.
HGI is a member of the cognitive and behavioural therapy working group, and is represented by Ivan Tyrrell.
He reports, "My impression from the first session is that the working group is open to human givens ideas, and the RIGAAR model (rapport building, information gathering, accessing trsources, agreeing strategies for change and rehearsing desired outcomes) in particular. Many of the other representatives were interested in how the approach is being implemented and took copies of our latest book An Idea in Practice."
