Child welfare services are often judged on what is done to a client rather than what is done with a client. This workshop covers the repertoire of progressive interventions that can lead to successful work with clients.

Topics include:

  • The power of a positive relationship
  • Home visits—how often and how long?
  • Creative confrontation
  • Creating a crisis
  • Remaining focused
  • Using multidisciplinary partners
  • Using the breadth of legal remedies

Participants will learn to use a variety of incrementally intrusive techniques to disturb dysfunctional equilibrium.
