Working with Families with Complex Needs Training Course

All Ages

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.
