Tough Conversations in Child Protection | Brisbane

The starting date for this event has passed. Some events are ongoing, check the dates and information below to see if you can still attend.
Tough Conversations in Child Protection is a one-day course for child protection professionals and family workers to help them to hold the often-challenging conversations with parents in child protection.

The course teaches a method to:

• Identify and clearly articulate the strengths and deficits in parents’ caring capacity so that parents have a clear future work plan.
• Comprehensively gather information for holding a factual tough conversation so that as many facts (as can be reasonably gathered) can be brought to bear in conversations with parents.
• Defuse antagonism during a tough conversation while holding a firm line.
• Identify the important ‘dashboard’ markers for parents so that everyone has clarity about what is expected within a given timespan.

Please note that this is not a train-the-trainer course and it is not designed for the subsequent on-training of other workers back at your workplace. Participants will sign a training agreement to this effect on the day of training.

What’s included:

• Training in how to conduct difficult conversations using a script to achieve accountability
• Lunch and refreshments
• A terrific opportunity to spend time with other child protection workers
