Event description

Description

Sport Psychologists from the University of Birmingham have teamed up with St Basils, Youth Voice, and Homeless Link, to co-create a toolkit based on the learning and evidence from the My Strengths Training for Life™ (MST4Life™) programme.

MST4Life™ is a unique strengths-based programme developed over 6 years as a collaboration between researchers, psychological practitioners, frontline staff, housing service managers and young people themselves. Originating from sport psychology programmes to support top athletes, MST4Life™ helps 16-24 year olds to recognise and develop the personal strengths needed to gain independence, build confidence, and achieve their aspirations.

To share the learning from MST4Life™ into a usable format, the toolkit contains evidence-based:

- Information and practical resources for staff to use in 1:1 or group work

- Self-study guide and workbook for service users

The workshop celebrating the launch of this toolkit will be of most interest to those who:

  • Are interested in psychologically-informed ways of working with service users

  • Work directly to support children and young adults who are homeless or at risk

  • Commission or run services that provide support to children and young adults who are homeless or at risk

  • Conduct research into community and strengths-based approaches with people who are homeless or at risk
