Two European associations, ARFIE (Association for Research and Training on Integration in Europe) and EASPD (European Association of Service Providers for People with Disabilities), were also involved in the project as dissemination partners.
TRIADD is a European training project for staffs who work directly with people who have an intellectual disability and mental health problems – also known as Dual Diagnosis.
- To bring together existing knowledge and training practices for professionals concerning dual diagnosis
- To perform a needs analysis survey amongst care professionals on key elements to be included in future training
- To develop new training packages for professionals supporting this target group
- To advance the availability of continuing training in Luxembourg (promoter’s country), where little training exists on this issue
- To offer this new training product to a broad European target group of care workers, other social sector professionals and training institutions
- To offer tele-training (e-learning) to front-line staff on the issues involved in supporting people with dual diagnosis.
During the project the partnership:
- Conducted a survey into staff training needs
- Researched resources useful to staff, not simply clinicians or researchers
- Devised a number of training courses to address these needs
- Delivered these training courses with verbal and written evaluation
- Circulated a follow-up questionnaire to trainees and organised a transnational meeting of front-line staff
- Transposed key elements of a basic training course into an e-learning format
- Set up a web site in English and French offering resources to staff and service providers, such as an interactive case-study message board and resources in other languages
