A comprehensive one-day course for child protection professionals and family workers to help them to hold the often-challenging conversations with parents in child protection.
The workshop helps busy professionals to quickly assess and prepare for tough conversations in situations where a clarity-of-message can make all the difference for vulnerable families.
The course teaches a method to:
- Identify and clearly articulate the strengths and deficits in parents’ caring capacity so that parents have a clear future work plan.
- Comprehensively gather information for holding a factual tough conversation so that as many facts as can be gathered can be brought to bear in conversations with parents.
- Defuse antagonism during a tough conversation while holding a firm line.
- Identify the important ‘dashboard’ markers for parents so that everyone has clarity about what is expected within a given timespan.
Please note that this is not a train-the-trainer course and it is not designed for the subsequent on-training of other workers back at your workplace. Participants will sign a training agreement to this effect on the day of training.
Lunch and refreshments are provided.
