Delivering What Works with Kids & Families: The Heart and Soul of Change
The root of many controversies in our field is the important question: “what works with kids”.
Is success based on the use of specialized techniques or do other factors account for the change?
Focus on how to interview and assess from a strength-based, family centered perspective.
This Evidence-Based Practice, called PCOMS (Partners for Change Outcome Management System), is a client-directed and outcome-informed process. Study the Outcome Rating and Satisfaction Rating Scales as a means of understanding your client’s needs and developing the kind of relational alliance that leads to improved success and positive outcomes.
This training is for anyone who works with clients in any capacity!
