Engaging difficult to engage families
Increasingly staff are being required to work alongside and with individuals and families experiencing complex challenges as well as alongside and with other agencies. This requires an ability to engage with those who have/are difficult to engage.
This practical programme provides the skills to support workers to be able to be persistent and proactive in order to engage difficult to engage individuals and families. It is practical and “hands on” with a focus on skills and strategy development, backed up by an understanding of why approaches work.
