Start: 02 November 2015, . Finish: 04 November 2015, .

This three day workshop enables practitioners from diverse backgrounds and agencies to explore change processes when working with individuals, groups and families. It draws on strengths-based and community development approaches and provides opportunities for participants to learn new knowledge and skills in working with complex situations alongside clients who are facing challenges in their daily lives including family issues such as parenting, and working with children and young people, mental health issues, drug and alcohol, grief and loss.

It is an experiential course and gives practitioners many opportunities for reflecting on their practice and learning new skills for working with clients and for implementing these ideas into their agency. 

The facilitators are highly experienced practitioners and the workshop is held on site at Te Aroha Noa, Palmerston North, so that participants are able to observe the implementation of the change strategies presented in the workshop. 

This workshop can be counted as continuing professional education and participants receive a certificate to confirm their participation in this workshop.
