It's been a busy first six months of 2022 at BCT; completing 16 training courses, supporting the training and development needs of nearly 200 participants, meeting lots of lovely people at the Primary Care Conference, hosting talks and webinars and building our new premises.
Our Applying Motivational Approaches to a Patient Group Setting course launches in October. This course will provide you with all the tools needed to use sound adult learning theory for planning and delivering courses, which will harness active, rather than passive learning opportunities. The workshop has a key focus on helping you to create a comfortable learning environment that helps motivate clients to consider change. Head over to the Applying Motivational Approaches to a Patient Group Setting for more information.
We have lots planned for the next six months so why not check out our course calendar.
On Tuesday 24 May 2022, 7:30 - 8:30 Sam Howard will be hosting a webinar for Nutribytes.

It is also essential that practitioners are given the training and supervision needed to be able to incorporate behaviour change into their practice.
In this websinar, Sam will discuss:

Welcome to 2022!
We hope that this new year brings change for the better.
If you would like to take some time out of work and complete some CPD or you would like something for the daily commute we would like to recommend the “Talking to Change” podcast.
This podcast with Glenn Hinds and Sebastian Kaplan explores the many applications of Motivational Interviewing.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for supporting BCT.
We love what we do, working with you to develop your skills and knowing that this will directly impact on your work, your patients and their health.
For many of you working in the health service the last couple of years have been relentless, and this Christmas will sadly be no exception.
Sometimes you might be thinking, what can I do? Can one person, one conversation make a difference? If you can spare a moment to put yourselves in your patient’s shoes.. they may have been waiting many months to speak to a healthcare professional, what you do and what you say will make a huge impact. Use your opportunities wisely and enjoy your work, be proud of what you do.
Our offices will be closing on Wednesday 22nd December and reopening on Tuesday 4th January 2022.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
