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 may appear quite simple but family dynamics can be complicated and complex which in turn will impact on the work that individual professionals do.
Some 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 is aimed at professionals who may come into contact with a variety of family situations and who may encounter families who have significant and complex issues which are not always simple or easy to solve and address.
By the end of this course learners should understand:
• What constitutes a ‘family’ and what can make a family complex and in need of support.
• How professionals can overcome barriers when working with families
• Anti -Social Behaviour – the causes, remedies and impact
• Effective partnership working
• Evidence based practice
• Reflective practice
