Working with Families with Complex Needs
This 1-day training course is for practitioners who have already completed the 4-day Parent Group Leader training or the 2-day Working One to One with Parents training. It equips staff to work effectively with families who are experiencing particular challenges in their parenting and to support them in developing and maintaining a consistent and positive approach under difficult circumstances.
On completion of the training, practitioners will have:
Considered their own and others’ motivations and beliefs about the work
Identified the pressures and expectations that come from others, from the wider system, and from themselves
Considered how to build a working alliance with families and how to work with resistance
Practised contracting, agreeing working boundaries, and setting goals with parents
Considered the impact of particular contexts on the work, e.g. domestic abuse, substance misuse, mental and physical ill health
Shared ideas and thoughts and had some fun with colleagues
