Communication, interpersonal and therapeutic skills; working in partnership with service users, carers and colleagues; respecting diversity, practising ethically and challenging inequality; developing reflective practitioners – with skills in critical thinking, evidence-based practice and life-long learning; leading, monitoring and developing care; promoting positive mental health.
