Event Type

Frontline service professionals find themselves working directly or indirectly with families.  This one-day workshop is designed to support professionals work in a professional, effective and understanding manner when engaging with families.  Working from an empathetic foundation, the workshop explores the specific challenges workers face, instructs on strategies to engage, and offer support to family members and increase sensitivity to family dynamics. From here, the workshop introduces practices for working with families from a trauma-informed approach.   This session will provide facilitated instruction, scenarios and case examples; participants should come prepared to share their own examples and challenges.  Participants will leave the session with practical approaches ready to implement in their workplaces.  This workshop will offer opportunities to engage in group discussion and to address specific challenges.
