Part One – Administration and Scoring
A full day’s training which will equip participants to administer and score both the Adult and Adolescent versions of the SASSI and to provide clients with a basic interpretation of the psychological profile. This day is very practical. The process can be likened to learning to drive. At the end of this day, the participants will know how to steer, the importance of the clutch, and how to change gear. However, they will need to gain practice in order to feel confident and to fix their knowledge in their memories. It is therefore recommended that organisers schedule some time between a Part One and a Part Two, in order to give participants the opportunity to use the SASSI with clients. When they return for a Part Two training day, participants are asked to bring with them suitably anonymised profiles of real clients, for more meaningful discussion.
Part Two – Interpretation and Feedback (either Adult or Adolescent)
As most practitioners are working either with adults or with adolescents, separate Part Two training days may be provided for each, which give a more specialised focus. Continuing the driving analogy, attendees should now be confident they can work the controls, and will be starting to look at the road to see what’s coming, what is the bigger picture, and what is the significance of this new information. This day is much more informal and participative. By the end of it, participants will be able to interpret the psychological profiling in more depth, and be able to relate this to referral decisions and care planning. They will have considered how best to feedback the information to clients and how to use it to motivate and inspire. They will have had the opportunity to discuss with their peers the profiles of real clients whom they have recently assessed and gained a practical understanding of the sorts of insights which the SASSI can provide. Optional topics such as using the SASSI in report writing can be included.
