Increasing Your Clinical Ability to Better Meet the Needs of Families Engaged in the Child Welfare System
Families engaged in the child welfare system have a range of unique clinical needs and considerations. It is critical that clinicians are able to both acknowledge aspects of diversity that impact the client experience but also their perspective and experience as providers. Taking an interactive approach, this webinar will not only explore the unique needs of families engaged in the child welfare system, but it will also examine the concept of location-of-self and review best clinical practices for working with this population.
- Participants will learn from a review of the current child welfare literature.
- Participants will understand key components of identity that influence the therapeutic approach of clinicians.
- Participants will be able to summarize best practices for working with families engaged in the child welfare system.
