Working effectively with complicated families can be challenging. This workshop takes key tenets from Multnomah County’s Assertive Engagement Training and applies these concepts and skills to the families we serve. In this workshop, participants will be offered a framework for understanding the experience of at- risk families. Participants will learn how to avoid some common pitfalls and how to use a few simple skills to promote healthy engagement. Anyone who works with complicated families and wants some new ideas for how to work with them will enjoy this workshop.

At the end of this session the participant will be able to:
  • Better understand the experience of families living through hardship, poverty, and other complications in their lives.
  • Understand and have access to a series of concepts and tools that will promote positive relations and engagement with our most complicated families.
Intended audience: EHS, HR, QTL, PFCE
