Facilitating multi-agency case conferences and meetings

Building the network and facilitating it to work in the best interest of the client.

What's it about?

This 2-day workshop is designed to assist workers in facilitating meetings and case conferences which involve family members and representatives from other agencies. It is based on the premise that clients are key stakeholders and experts in their own lives and that they with be more committed to plans and actions that they have been an equal partner in creating. The course will review group processes, leadership and facilitation models and the use of influence where no formal authority exists. The course will use local case studies as a basis for practice opportunities with heavy doses of feedback from courses trainers and participants.

This course is facilitated by Neil Carver-Smith and/or Margaret McBride
