Staying BRIEF with Children & Families

On this course you will meet social workers, teachers, nurses, psychologists, mentors, family support staff, doctors and members of other professions involved in the care of children and families. You will be able to review and refresh your basic skills including

·        Making a working, outcome orientated contract.
·        Developing a realistic description of an agreed and a preferred future.
·        Discovering the client’s hidden resources and those aspects of thinking, feeling and
      behaving which might in some way contribute to the hoped-for outcome.
·        The creative use of scales.
·        Feedback and tasks
·        Follow-up sessions
 
Like every BRIEF course the emphasis will be on learning through practice so that the skills you leave with are your own. You will also have been able to identify where solution focused skills have an important contribution and where they need to be put to one side while other tasks, such as assessment, ensuring safety and other statutory and organizational requirements.
 
BRIEF trainers have all been children and family social workers and have specialized in child protection assessment and treatment. They still work with families, many referred by social workers and with children mostly referred by schools. They currently have three school-based projects in which they work directly with teachers and students mainly on issues of behaviour. During the course you will be able to see videotapes of actual sessions covering all aspects of this work.
