The Decider Life Skills include 12 of The Decider Skills for use as proactive mental health or as a waiting list intervention.  The Decider Life Skills enable everyone to learn effective CBT-based coping skills before they need them and build resilience.  They are ideal for use in schools, youth groups, GP surgeries, prison and probation services, business, care services, education services, student support services, charities and voluntary services.  They are also used in mental health services as a waiting list intervention.

The Decider Life Skills Trainer Manual is aimed at teachers,  lecturers, youth leaders, GPs, school nurses, social workers, volunteers, general health professionals (adult and children), managers, HR staff....anyone who is likely to be teaching others to use The Decider Life Skills.  (Order from here)

Michelle and Carol or The Decider Authorised Trainers offer one day Life Skills training workshops.

The 12 skills of The Decider Life Skills are taught over the course of one day.  The day starts with an introduction to The Decider Life Skills, The Fizz and the basic CBT vicious cycles of anxiety, sadness, anger and stress.

We then teach all 12 skills in the way we normally teach the skills with our clients, which includes an introduction and the rationale for using the skill, and a fun demonstation.  Participants are asked to discuss and perhaps pratise teaching the the skills in small groups, and are encouraged to share ideas with everyone.


We come to you to deliver the training. 

You provide the teaching room, the participants, the presentation facilities (computer, speakers, white board) and refreshments.

We provide 40 copes of The Decider Life Skills Trainer Manual and The Decider Life Skills Handbook, although the number of attendees is dependent on the venue and facilities.
