Course Description

This workshop offers an integrated practice framework of "Collaborative Helping" that is applicable across child protective, outreach, residential and outpatient contexts.

Drawing on Motivational Interviewing, Appreciative Inquiry, the Signs of Safety aproach to child protection work, and Narrative, Collaborative, and Solution-Focused therapies, this workshop highlights a practice framework to help families envision desired lives, address long-standing problems, and develop proactive coping strategies in the context of their local communities.
