This two-day workshop will prepare participants to deliver the Single Session Family Consultation (SSFC) training to other clinicians. There is an expectation that attendees come to the workshop with a date for the delivery of their first SSFC training already in the calendar. The workshop equips participants with the skills to teach other clinicians how to engage with and attend to the needs of family/whānau in service contexts where the primary client is usually an individual (e.g. child or adult engaged with mental health/AOD service); this includes how to facilitate productive and efficient meetings. Additionally, in a safe and supportive environment, participants will practice teaching clinicians how to negotiate with service users about how the family consultation will occur to avoid jeopardising the primary relationship between the client and the practitioner. The experienced Bouverie trainers will provide real-life examples and hands on coaching.
The final date for registrations is Friday 22nd September, 2017.
The workshop is limited to 25 participants and registration is by invitation only. Priority will be given to people who:
- Have received the Bouverie Single Session Family Consultation training
- Are using the model and receiving support/supervision
- Are working in DHB or NGO mental health or addiction services
- Have the support of their manager/clinical leader to provide training to other clinicians
- Have capacity in their schedule to train other clinicians
- Have an understanding of the requirements outlined in the Supporting Parents Healthy Children Guideline
