WEBINAR: Choosing Your Attitude: Using Strengths-Based Family Assumptions

June 30, 2020 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
Autumn Strausbaugh

Providers’ assumptions and emotions can sometimes get in the way of effective engagement with families. For example, when a family doesn’t follow through on a recommendation, the provider can become frustrated. Choosing to adopt strength-based family assumptions supports providers in discovering the strengths of the families with whom they work, which leads to improved relationships. In this webinar, you will learn how to use strengths-based assumptions in our interactions with families. You will learn about family engagement strategies for using the Strengths-Based Family Assumptions that you can immediately apply to your work.
