WORKING WITH FAMILIES AND SIGNIFICANT OTHERS

Back in 2016, Dovetail launched a good practice guide "Working with families and significant others." We've used the material in this guide to develop an online, self-paced training package, designed to improve family responsive practice for workers who are engaging with young people. The package includes information on approaches to understanding family connection, engaging with and including family and others in practice, mapping family connections, and strategies to improve your agency's family responsive practice. The training package takes about an hour to complete, and you get a certificate on completion.

TRAINING IN YOUR ORGANISATION

Dovetail can provide training and professional development events for workers, services and communities across Queensland on a range of topics related to youth alcohol and drug use. As we are a small team we may not be able to meet all training requests received from across the state. However we are always happy to assist workers and services with finding and accessing alternative professional development options.

Where possible, training should:

  • be developed in collaboration with a range of stakeholders
  • be open to a broad and diverse range of workers from various agencies
  • showcase local knowledge, skills and speakers so as to capitalise on existing, networks and practice wisdom in your community
  • facilitate enhanced connections between local agencies
  • enable collaborative future planning
  • address a local professional development need
