Event Details

Focus

Family placement practitioners are faced with the task of undertaking complex assessments within tight timescales. Many assessments still rely purely on interview style self reporting which can lead to ‘stock’ answers being given by applicants. This course will enable practitioners to further develop their assessment skills through the use of tools and frameworks which can ‘surprise the unconscious’ and lead to a more holistic understanding of applicants’ strengths and vulnerabilities.

This is a skills based, experiential programme in which participants will practice the use of a variety of interactive assessment methods to engage with prospective foster carers, adopters and any children in the family.

Participants will come away with a range of different tools and questionnaires which they can apply in and some of the tools used will also benefit carers when children are placed.

The course will look at planning issues, the use of references and checks and will also provide workers with a variety of frameworks to ensure that the reports they produce are underpinned by sound analysis, robust evidence and professional judgement.
