Synopsis of Working with Families with Complex Needs
Many professionals from a multitude of organisations will come into contact with ‘families’ in their line of work on a daily basis.
The initial reason for this contact for instance, may appear quite simple because family dynamics can be complicated and above all extremely complex. This in turn will therefore impact on the work that individual professionals do.
In conclusion, some professionals therefore may become involved because of the complexity and related concerns.
Others may become involved in a fragmented way, or because a number of issues have resulted in the need for a specific service.
No two situations are the same and as professionals, we all need to understand this, how to manage this and how to understand the methods for dealing with the differing needs that will occur.
This course(Working with Families with Complex Needs) is aimed at line managers or senior practitioners who will have to manage a variety of complex issues and family situations on a daily basis.
