130284| The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists| AACP Acupuncture Foundation Course - Leamington Spa - September 2019|

AACP Foundation Acupuncture Course

This course is divided equally between direct contact time and self-directed learning. It is designed to offer you a level of knowledge, skill and understanding that will allow you to practice acupuncture in a safe and appropriate manner, in a clinical setting.

Tailor-made for Physiotherapists, the course provides a Western medical approach to acupuncture – grounded in current research evidence rather than in traditional Chinese philosophical thinking. This course does not cover the traditional Chinese medical approach to acupuncture, except where Western scientific theory and evidence can be used to explain concepts of traditional Chinese medicine (e.g. fascial planes and meridians).

You will be encouraged to critically evaluate your own clinical practice and where appropriate, challenge the current evidence base. This course is designed to provide you with a rationale for using acupuncture as an adjunctive treatment for the management of common musculoskeletal pain conditions. Topics covered include the laboratory and radiological research which is used to explain the mechanism of acupuncture analgesia; current evidence from acupuncture clinical trials research; and the non-specific ‘placebo’ effects associated with acupuncture analgesia. In addition to needling classical acupuncture points, participants will be introduced to the concept of myofascial trigger points, and the use of acupuncture needling for pain associated with myofascial trigger points.

Students must:

- have HCPC physiotherapy registration

- have CSP membership

- be able to practise acupuncture in a clinical setting between the course parts

- give the tutor informed consent to receive repetitive needling (with particular regard to being or trying to become pregnant).

- attend all 6 days of the course

- be able to treat three separate patients in a safe and legal environment for their case studies. Failure to do so may affect your professional HCPC registration (see AACP website for safety guidelines).

You will also benefit from one year FREE membership with the AACP.

Previous delegates have said:

I found the course really eye opening and refreshing to be taught such a skill and encouraged to actually make my own judgements about it based on a variety of sources instead of told why I should believe what someone else is saying.

I think the course itself is a credit to the AACP as an organisation and I am really glad I had the opportunity to benefit from the tutors personal experience and viewpoint as a teacher. I feel really quite lucky!

Description:

Since September 2013, when the GDC published its new Scope of practice guidance for dental professionals, dental hygienists and dental therapists have been able to undertake additional tasks if ‘trained, competent and indemnified’ to do so. The first is to ‘prescribe radiographs’ and the second is to ‘interpret various film views used in general dental practice’. This CPD course aimed at qualified dental hygienists and dental therapists will adequately train them to take on duties relating to referral for radiography, justification of X-ray examinations, selection of appropriate radiographs and clinical evaluation (reporting) of images. The course is also suitable for hygienists and therapists wishing to keep up-to-date with new developments or requirements. For those registrants new to prescribing radiographs, they will need to complete a portfolio of ten case studies in the following six months. This must include a reflective account. Information about compiling the portfolio of evidence will be provided during the course. Attending this CPD activity will contribute towards IR(ME)R operators’ and practitioners’ life-long learning and the hours requirement of verifiable CPD.

130260| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Webinar on Behavioral Interviewing Maximizing the Return on Interviews|

The TrainHR webinar is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

Overview: Behavioral interviewing is a proven, powerful technique for improving the quality of information gained during the interview process. Instead of having job applicants tell you "what you want to hear", this approach produces powerfully predictive data which improves the accuracy of hiring decisions. 

Starting with understanding the factors which lead to job success, the session will present question-asking and probing techniques designed to yield important predictors of the candidate's capabilities. Participants will gain skill in getting the whole story from candidates to minimize employment "surprises" down the road.

The session will provide guidance in evaluating candidate responses and linking information gathered in the interview to future on-the-job behaviors. Finally, participants will learn techniques for increasing the probability of acceptances to job offers. 

Why should you Attend: Virtually nobody, particularly in the US, gets hired without a job interview. Unfortunately, the traditional employment interview adds little to the accuracy of selection beyond flipping a coin. Typically, interviewers ask a series of "softball" questions to which the candidate tells the interviewer what he/she wants to hear.

The end result is a huge waste of time and job offers extended to the glib of tongue, not necessarily the most qualified.

The good news is that there is, indeed, a better way. Behavioral interviewing, a technique which has been researched and refined over the last thirty years, has consistently been shown to improve the accuracy of selection and enable hiring managers to make hiring decisions with more competence and confidence. This session will serve as a primer for the techniques of behavioral interviewing, equipping attendees with the simple, but powerful tools to extract meaningful information from candidates and make decisions based upon more powerful information. 

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • The structure of competence
  • The best predictor of future behavior
  • Opening the interview
  • Interview information categories
  • Designing effective interview questions
  • Probing for the whole story
  • Evaluating the information received
  • Telling and selling


Who Will Benefit:

  • HR Generalists
  • HR Directors
  • Line Managers involved in Hiring
  • Business Owners

130258| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Webinar on Getting Past the fluff: Behavioral Interviewing|

The TrainHR webinar is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 

Overview: The employment interview is the most common tool for deciding whom to hire. In many cases, unfortunately, it measures little other than the candidate's ability to tell the interviewer what he/she wants to hear hardly a basis for a hiring decision. 

The good news is that upping the predictive ability of the interview isn't difficult. It requires a bit of discipline and understanding of some very basic principles. This webinar will equip attendees with the tools to conduct more valid interviews and hire with greater competence and confidence. 

Starting with an understanding of what it takes to succeed in a job, this session will provide the practical tools to design, conduct, and evaluate the responses from the job interview in order to make a more accurate and informed decision about whom to hire. 

Why should you Attend: The pre-employment interview is, by far, the most often used selection tool. Filling virtually any job requires an interview, even positions where speaking articulately isn't a requirement. Why is this case? Basically, interviewers consider themselves good judges of character. Unfortunately, the research is quite clear that unstructured interviews conducted by untrained people do no better than chance in predicting future job success. In other words, you could flip a coin or pick applicants out of a hat.

The good news is that increasing the predictive yield from interviews isn't all that difficult. With an understanding of some basic principles and a bit of practice and discipline, virtually any interviewer can increase his/her effectiveness.

This webinar will help any interviewer, from the novice to the 20-year veteran, in conducting more powerful and accurate interviews along with increasing the probability that a chosen candidate will accept your job offer. 

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • The structure of competence
  • How to analyze a job's requirements
  • Interview information categories
  • The best predictor of future behavior
  • Principles of good interviewing
  • Errors to avoid
  • Designing interview questions
  • Follow-up probing
  • Interpreting information
  • Using multiple interviewers


Who Will Benefit:

  • HR Generalists
  • HR Managers
  • Line Managers involved in Hiring
  • Business Owners

130257| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Webinar on HR Compliance 101 - for Non HR Managers|

The TrainHR webinar is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 

Overview: Knowing what to do in increasingly complicated employee situations can be difficult for even seasoned managers, especially if a manager has never had training. For a new manager these problems are intensified. 

Further exacerbating the problem is that managers often inherit a dysfunctional department and/or are promoted to supervise those with whom they once were coworkers. In an increasingly complicated world of employee compliance in which HR struggles just to keep abreast of new developments not teaching managers the basics can be costly. After all it's the managers who interact with employees on a day to day basis and every day is an opportunity for problems to arise that a manger was never trained how to address. Even routine situations such as denying a seemingly simple request for a few days off can blow up into claims of a denied request for protected leave. 

Why should you Attend: From a business perspective, training managers in the basics of HR compliance basics of employment law, how to write documentation and how to use the tools of employee development is the cheapest thing an employer can do to stave off unwarranted employment claims. 

From a manager's perspective managing from Day One is the most important thing a manager can do for productivity purposes, compliance reasons, employee development and engagement and also to safeguard their own career. 

From an HR perspective, training managers of the basics of HR compliance can help to defend against a whole host of unwarranted employment claims, including those that often begin from miscommunication, misinformation, and mismanagement. 

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Basics of the Big Four of employment compliance- Title VII, FLSA, FMLA, ADA
  • Managing from Day One - Using the 4 tools of a manager,coaching, performance reviews, performance improvement plans and discipline
  • The 12 elements of documentation
  • What to do if someone is struggling doing their job for whatever the reason - having a process
  • Inheriting a dysfunctional department - avoiding the pitfalls
  • Preventing harassment, bullying and general dysfunction
  • What to do with employee complaints


Who Will Benefit:

  • Front Line Managers
  • Department Managers
  • New HR Persons
  • Anyone promoted into a Management position
  • Managers Who were Promoted from Within their Companies

130256| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Webinar on How Leaders can Create a Culture of Everyday Civility that Means Business|

The TrainHR webinar is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 

Overview: 
This webinar has been designed by one of the foremost experts in toxic personalities and everyday civility-Dr. Mitchell Kusy. Translating his research into evidence-based practices, Dr. Kusy will provide four distinct and concrete ways to create organizations of everyday civility:

  • Integrating values into performance management in innovative, concrete, and strategic ways-so that no one gets away with uncivil behavior
  • Designing no-cost recruiting methods, which provides successful screens to reduce the probability of hiring a toxic person in the first place
  • Engaging a standardized team assessment instrument to evaluate how team members may either increase or decrease everyday civility
  • Identifying how to give effective feedback to toxic individuals-feedback that improves that behavior changes will result.


This webinar further helps leaders separate performance problems from toxic behavior problems. They are different and needed to be treated differently. Giving feedback to a toxic person is one of the most painful forms of feedback. Why? For three reasons. 

First, toxic people are often clueless about the impact of their actions on others. Second, leaders stumble over how to give feedback because it's not as cut and dry as performance problems. Third, leaders often don't understand the subtle differences in giving feedback to a toxic peer, a toxic direct report, and a toxic boss. 

This webinar shares all three perspectives such that leaders will be well-poised to provide feedback in the most successful light-all formed from extensive research and evidence-based practices of Dr. Kusy and others. 

Why should you Attend: Dr. Kusy, with colleague Dr. Elizabeth Holloway, conducted their landmark 3-year national study of over 400 individuals on what makes toxic people tick, how to successfully handle their disruptive behaviors, and how to design cultures of everyday civility.Dr. Kusy recommends that leaders first determine the financial cost of uncivil cultures through his heavily researched Toxic Cost Worksheet.

This will help leaders drive "stake in the ground" that these behaviors not only erode personal well-being and team performance, but also the bottom line. How much of the bottom line? Through this Toxic Cost Worksheet, it will be up to 6% of total compensation costs throughout your entire organization!

Once leaders understand the significant financial impact of toxic individuals, they will be well on their way to understanding how to create cultures of everyday civility that improves personal well-being, team performance, and the bottom line. 

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Revise traditional performance management into one that positions values of everyday civility into concrete behaviors
  • Coach toxic personalities in the most effective ways to give them feedback
  • Deal more effectively with the 94% of employees who have reported they have worked with a toxic person in the past 5 years
  • Use a simple assessment tool to understand team climate, as 87% reported that team climate worsened as a result of a toxic person
  • Avoid hiring toxic people with a simple, concrete, and no-cost method
  • Calculate the financial cost of toxic individuals in your organization


Who Will Benefit:

  • Leadership Coaches
  • Organization Development Practitioners
  • Talent Development Professionals
  • Human Resource Leaders
  • Human Resource Practitioners
  • Executives
  • Managers
  • Supervisors
