Event description A half day workshop looking at key concepts to support families in:
- Building Blocks to Changes
- Building Family Strengths
- Building Protection in Context

At the end of the session participants will be able to consider how their own values and experience impact on work with children and families and how individuals manage change. The session will support participants to work in a strength-based way and to understand how trauma may manifest itself in young people and families.
