The T4T is effectively delivered over a 4-day period face-to-face OR over a 5-day period virtually. This ensures that all participants understand the theories, principles and models that underpin CALM and the CALM Care programs; fully grasp and are able to demonstrate their ability to explain and use the CALM model of intervention and the CALM Care model of engagement, as well as raise awareness, and lastly to gain confidence in their ability to competently deliver these programs to their audiences. Outline: Day 1 – When delivered face-to-face the CALM one-day program will be delivered in its entirety to give you a view of the one day presentation from a participants perspective and provide reflection and feedback.
