  • Participants will better understand what may lead to behaviours that indicate reluctance to engage and identify strategies to deal with reluctant or resistant individuals/families.

  • Participants will consider anti-oppressive methods of communication and how to incorporate these to engage effectively with children and their families.

  • Participants will be able to relate the Strengthening Families framework to assess and review information held in order to identify current and historic risks, strengths, grey areas and any protective factors.
