How do you explain, at the outset of services, what information will be considered in making the next court recommendation? How do you provide frequent and candid feedback on case plan progress without developing a deficit-based relationship? How do you maintain continuity across visits rather than narrowly addressing the crisis of the month? This workshop explores ways to use the reunification reassessment "throughout the life of a case." Participants are introduced to techniques addressing these issues and are then given an opportunity to practice.
