Doing ‘something’ to help someone in distress is valuable and important, doing something with a sound evidence base can have greater benefit.
With an academic and clinical background, we know what works well in training and to help those in distress. Our packages are based on academic research and best practice with a focus on ‘real life’ experiences. Evidence underpins the content and methods of our training packages, and our unique formula is supported by academic research. Studies have demonstrated that STORM® skills training is effective in:
• Developing & enhancing skills
• Improving attitudes
• Increasing confidence in helping someone in distress
The research supports STORM®’s effectiveness across a range of audiences including frontline health and social care, volunteer workers, schools and higher education, and in prisons.
What we have learned through delivering the training extensively over the years is that, whilst our studies are limited to specific target groups, participants from a range of audiences have also benefited from STORM®.
