Coleman et al (2014) evaluated a training programme named ‘Relationship support: An early intervention’ with Sure Start Children’s Centre (SSCC) staff. The training used a blended model of learning which involved an online introduction to the Brief Encounters® model followed by a one-day workshop facilitated by two skilled practitioners. The aims of the programme are to recognise relationship difficulties, respond using active listening and solution-focused techniques, and review the need for further support. The training is designed to be implemented alongside practitioners’ usual work.
