PATHWAYS TO PARTNERSHIPS:  SUPPORTING AT-RISK PARENTS (2days) 

 

When parents are unable to adequately meet their children’s needs, professional helpers may be called in to intervene. While children can and do benefit, too often they are left feeling abandoned or caught between divided loyalties. In this workshop participants explore approaches to working with parents/caregivers that go beyond shame and blame, that allow helpers to let go of the unrealistic role of ‘problem fixer’, and that create the conditions needed for genuine parent-helper partnerships. 

 BUILDING BRIDGES, TEARING DOWN WALLS: 

 STRATEGIES FOR COMMUNITY RECOVERY (2 - 3 days) 

 

In this workshop participants examine the principles of a community recovery model that supports a unified community-based approach to addressing social problems. The emphasis is on using storytelling, art-based exercises and group reflection to explore practical approaches to mobilizing communities for positive change.
