Why this workshop?
You got into the field because you care, and you do your best to help the people you serve.
But you work in an imperfect system in an imperfect world, and there are times when you just can't seem to reach the person across from you, who seems to be struggling with motivation and engagement in the services you offer.
Responsive Practice is an approach that moves away from traditional and reductionist views of people and behaviour. This approach is guided by foundational beliefs that challenge pathological, problem-oriented and biomedical-focused frameworks so that we may understand and approach human helping in the most effective and efficient manner possible.
Who Should Attend?
All frontline practitioners, supervisors and clinicians in human services who are determined and committed to improve client-centred practice, maximize engagement and enhance efficiencies towards desired client outcomes will benefit from this hands-on and engaging workshop.
