The course follows a typical training format found to be most helpful in adult learning:
- feedback of the previous week's home practice
- a theoretical section including the topic for the session
- skills demonstration and practice
- homework practice using the techniques with the young people
The training uses a range of learning methods and teams are encouraged to consider scenarios and examples that are current and relevant to their children's home.

Learning techniques used include:
- video clips
- practical exercises
- role play - using examples from participant's own experiences
