Partners in Care - Carers and Case Workers Stronger Together; Working with Adolescents

Tuesday, June 14, 2016 - 09:30 to Wednesday, June 15, 2016 - 16:30

The challenge of working with adolescents in out-of-home care are complex; case workers and carers alike may be unprepared for the demands and changing needs of 12 – 18 year olds and this can lead to relationship breakdowns between carers, case workers and the children and young people they care for.

‘Partners in Care’ takes a collaborative peer approach where case workers and carers share power and knowledge, pool their skills and redefine roles to negotiate a consistent approach in working with adolescents. Together you will develop a common shared language and discover a new way of connecting to strengthen relationships with young people and set goals with them for their future.
