Event description

Description

Rockford Area Case Management Initiative is a community wide approach to deliver individualized strength-based and person-centered support services that help participants achieve specific, self-defined outcomes leading to a healthy self-reliance and interdependence within their community.

Empower People for Change: Making Case Management Work focuses on the foundation principles of Dr. Beverly Ford’s person-centered, outcome-based case management journey to self-sufficiency. The training will change the way you deliver case management by actively engaging participants in setting and achieving THEIR goals. This approach focuses on strengths and moves away from “doing for” participants what they can and should do for themselves. Participants become the lead partner and you are the backup partner. Participants become responsible for change because they are the only ones who can ultimately decide to make change happen.

Case Managers and Supervisors (or the front-line staff with the relevant job duties at your organization, regardless of title) are encouraged to attend; organizations sending more than 4 staff members only pay for the first 4 ($80 max/organization). Certificate of Completion for attendance will be awarded, and CEUs for social workers are available.

This initiative was made possible by a grant from the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois
