October 26th - Two (2) Tracks

Track-1: Individual Engagement & Care Coordination Track

Evidence-Based Pathways: Core & Advance Skills for Case Management & Care Coordination

Effective case management is a collaborative process of assessing, planning, facilitating, and advocating for options and services for collaboratively meeting clients' individual needs efficiently. Adopting evidence-based and strength-centered practices is a commitment to professionalism, quality care and effective client services in the face of large caseloads, and often limited resources. This program will aid in closing the gap.

Program Summary
During this masterclass participants learn evidence-based case management practices and how they apply. They will learn to differentiate traditional ineffective deficit-centered practices from evidence-based and strength-centered practices. Through the use of relevant examples, participants will learn how they can help their clients achieve desirable outcomes through promoting quality and effective interventions which link individuals to appropriate resources. Beyond linking to resources, they will learn to ensure the linking is complete and being utilized as intended.

Program Goals and Intended Outcomes

Participants will be in a position to learn;

  • Transtheoretical Model for Change - How People Change
  • Effective client interviewing skills for building healthy collaborative client relationships
  • The Importance of Empathy in the therapeutic relationship
  • Strength-centered vs. Deficit-based approaches
  • Motivational Interviewing Strategies to Increase Intrinsic Motivation
  • Learn current trends in case management
  • Be in a position to help clients set goals and facilitate their achievement
  • Learn to use warm transfers to insure an integrated client services delivery
  • Learn to write better goals, objectives and interventions for increased accountability and improved client outcomes
  • Learn to determine clients’ level of readiness and work efficiently toward desired goals
  • Gain knowledge of key components of successful case management
  • Case Management Process, interventions and discharge cues

Track-1: Trauma & Services Delivery

Trauma-informed Care & Vicarious Traumatic: Understanding & Leveraging Trauma for Service Excellence


This training is intended to help practitioners develop skills for assessing the impact of trauma on functioning and ability to benefit from treatment. Implementing trauma-informed practice expresses a human service program's intention to assess and potentially modify its organization, management, and service delivery system to include a basic understanding of how trauma affects the life of an individual seeking or providing services.

This Full-Day program is delivered in 2 sessions;

AM Session: Become trauma-informed regarding clients they serve

PM Session: Gain understanding of trauma they themselves suffer as a result of their own exposure to clients that they serve.

It is adapted to account for implications resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and its challenges.

October 27th - Two (2) Tracks

Track-1: Family Engagement 

Evidence-Based Pathways for Engaging Families to Deliver Supports & Services in Community

This program focuses on Family Group Decision-Making, Teaming and Conferencing methods as the key frameworks agencies can utilize to deliver durable family engagement services in their communities. They are evidence-based and strength-centered in how they build up families such that they themselves are positioned to find immediate solutions to needs, and provide long-term solutions for issues related to their safety, permanence and well-being. The approaches are evidence-based and strength-centered. 

The research shows that use of evidence based family engagement approaches provide enhanced collaboration, additional supports and assessment information thus, improved outcomes.

Program Outline

Imagine you have an entire team to assist you as you provide quality interventions to the individuals and families you serve. Also, consider what it would be like if you could decrease the level of resistance you experience as you provide quality intervention.  That is what Family Group, Teaming and Conferencing bring to children and family services delivery.  This strength centered approach has been used to effectively provide planning in all areas of social service interventions: Drug and Alcohol, Adult and Juvenile Probation, Child Welfare, Adult and Child Behavioral Health and Disabilities and Aging.  It is used in all these disciplines because it works!

Integrating evidence-based and strength-centered policies, programs and practices must be a primary goal in all service delivery to maximize resources and their benefits for consumers. Challenging traditional practice methodologies, this workshop introduces participants to Family Group, Conferencing and Teaming as the preferred method for engaging and empowering families to plan how to resolve their concerns as well as those of the agency. The approaches provide the contextual framework for a service delivery approach that emphasizes family engagement and empowerment through the belief that families should be given the opportunity and responsibility to develop their own plans – based on the fundamental belief that no one knows a family’s situation and available resources better than families themselves. The approaches for engagement are evidence-based and strength-centered and account for children, their families, unique populations, foster care settings.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be in a position to gain an understanding of the workings of Family Group, Conferencing and Family Teaming and the stages of the process. Additionally, it will prepare them to begin planning for and working toward more successful implementation of the models. The content also delves into higher-level information associated with an FGDM meeting – primarily from the focus of the referral source. Learn skills that will assist you in reducing resistance from the individual's, families and communities that you serve.

Participants will be able to:

  • Describe the Family Group, Conferencing, Teaming and Decision Making process;
  • Understand how the process empowers individuals, families and communities to work towards positive change;
  • Identify concepts, values and beliefs that are involved to drive the process;
  • Understand how they apply in the case management and care coordination process;
  • Understand the roles and activities of all the individuals involved in the process;
  • Review the core steps necessary to implement or integrate these approaches at their agency
