This 1 day training focuses on how to use the AMBIT AIM cards. The AIM cards are a tool designed to encourage applying mentalizing in face to face client work. They can be used in person’ or as a unique remote version in order to:  

  • Get to know a client and build an understanding of their perspective across a wide range of areas of life 
  • Develop shared plans and goals and then monitor progress on these collaboratively through your work together 
  • The AIM cards are particularly relevant as a tool to use with clients who have multiple needs and may find it difficult to express or communicate their views 

The training will also cover use of the AIM questionnaire- a worker-rated version of the AIM cards which is used as an outcome measure to track progress across a wide range of areas of functioning. 

Participants will be given access to the remote version of the AIM cards as part of the training.

This is a live online training, with trainers present throughout. The training consists of an engaging combination of live teaching, group discussion, skills practice, and interactive online activities.
