When faced with multiple complex issues and the involvement of multiple agencies, it can be difficult to ‘hold it all together’ in working with families towards the possibility of change. A commitment to client-directed planning can seem at odds with ‘imposed’ goals around child safety, and working with other agencies to ensure integrated support planning brings its own challenges. This workshop examines:
- effective inclusive support planning with families whose lives may appear chaotic
- inclusive planning in which the process itself engenders hope and promotes change
- working through relationship to craft effective responses and avoid drift of focus.
