Families – Challenging Circumstances

Every family has its challenges, but some face more difficult circumstances than others. This 10-15 week course will give you a greater understanding of the issues that affect some families, so that you’ll be better equipped to encourage and support them.

During the course there will be 3 workshop days to attend and a portfolio to complete, alongside which you’ll need to gain 30 hours experience of working with families.

Together we’ll cover the following topics:
  • Section 1: Modern Constructs of a Family
  • Section 2: The effect of separation, loss and divorce
  • Section 3: The effect of adoption
  • Section 4: Child protection
  • Section 5: Disability
  • Section 6: Domestic Abuse

Families faced with these challenges may feel isolated and overwhelmed but our training course gives you the skills needed to come alongside them in their difficulties, providing reassurance and hope when they’re most in need.
