Professional Development - 8 October

Written on the 8 October 2020 by SAFCA

Friday 16 October 9.30am 3.30pm AEST AIPC Working with Children & Families

As community services professionals and volunteers tackle increasingly complex issues within their role, our free workshop Working with Children and Families will provide you and your team with specialist knowledge and skills to work effectively with children and families, adding greater professional and personal effectiveness and confidence in their role.

(Places are necessarily limited so please review and register now).

The 6-hour, comprehensive online workshop is entirely free.

It's an opportunity to network with other professionals and engage in 4 online learning sessions, which include:

  1. Working with families with consideration to family systems and structure, cultural and societal considerations, and facilitating positive changes in families.
  2. Working with children and young people utilising appropriate communication and engagement strategies.  Child mental health and suicide is also covered.
  3. Exploring domestic and family violence contexts and responding appropriately to clients at risk of harm, abuse and violence.
  4. Discussing a complex family case study with consideration and application of knowledge and skills learned through the previous sessions.

PLEASE NOTE: All attendees receive a comprehensive workbook, which includes a summary of all information and skills covered. The workbook will not be printed in hard copy format on this occasion due to difficulties being experienced with Australia Post deliveries.

It is inevitable within helping and support work crises will arise. In this webinar we cover common crises that helping professionals encounter and key aspects of responding to risk. We'll also focus on how helping professionals can support themselves when crises arrive, from monitoring for burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma to practical strategies we can use both at work and beyond.
