Since 1989 BRIEF has delivered over 5000 days of agency-based training to organisations throughout the Public, Corporate and Voluntary sectors.

These trainings have varied from one-day workshops to 12-day courses.

They have been delivered to a significant range of different professional groups including social workers, educational and clinical psychologists, teachers, psychiatrists and general practitioners, managers across the sectors, nurses, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, health visitors, educational social workers, housing workers, coaches and many many more.

Organisations come back to BRIEF over and over not only because of the quality of the training but because commissioners know that BRIEF trainings will incorporate all the new thinking in the approach and they can be confident of this because BRIEF has been at the cutting edge of shaping the developments of the approach over the past 10 years.
