Working with Families

Many services are limited in their capacity to work with individuals, particularly due to the intergenerational nature of the multiple and complex barriers they face. Working with individuals alone may not be the most effective way to support them to make positive changes in their lives. Including a client’s family in any case management may be an appropriate method for addressing long-term issues and barriers. This workshop has been developed to provide participants with an opportunity to learn practical skills and techniques to enable participants to work successfully with individuals and their families.

This workshop is suitable for…practitioners in the health and welfare fields wanting to extend their knowledge and skills to effectively work with clients alongside their families.

Learning objectives:

Participants will:

  1. Have a greater understanding of the role that family plays in a young person’s development
  2. Have a greater knowledge of referral pathways for families who may benefit from family-based interventions
  3. Have increased skills and confidence to work with and manage families
  4. Have specific knowledge with regard to working with Aboriginal Australian families
