Location: Online via Zoom
Students address case assessment specific to exploring and identifying the underlying issues in the family including family violence, family needs, strengths, and resources. This case assessment prepares the worker to move forward with an effective case plan regarding how to support the youth in our systems of care in the safest and healthiest manner. We will focus on understanding how to diagnose ineffective family relationship patterns and traumatic attachment ruptures via the use of Pain in the Heart Theory (PITH). Once we are able to diagnose the pain, we will be ready to know where the healing needs to occur so that our youth can start experiencing positive outcomes in all of their settings including more likelihood of not being removed from the home, successful reunifications if they have been removed, and more sustainable permanent placements!
