Parentshop – Tough Conversations™ in Child Protection
A one-day online course for child protection workers to build skills for challenging conversations with parents and families involved with the child protection system
Tough Conversations in Child Protection is a one-day course for child protection professionals and family workers to help them to hold the often-challenging conversations with parents in child protection.
The origin of these child protection workshops arose from a similar series of workshops already being held nationally for school principals. The workshop helps busy professionals to quickly assess and prepare for tough conversations in situations where clarity of message can make all the difference for vulnerable families.
Expected learning outcomes:
- Identify and clearly articulate the strengths and deficits in parents’ caring capacity so that parents have a clear future work plan
- Comprehensively gather information for holding a factual tough conversation so that as many facts (as can be reasonably gathered) can be brought to bear in conversations with parents
- Defuse antagonism during a tough conversation while holding a firm line
- Identify the important ‘dashboard’ markers for parents so that everyone has clarity about what is expected within a given timeframe.
