About this event

This one day workshop has been developed to give participants a greater understanding of the impact of trauma and resettlement on family roles and relationships. The frameworks that guide family counselling and support will be explored in particular trauma recovery models, family therapy and culturally appropriate practice.

Throughout the day we will be discussing the key skills and competencies of family work including establishing a therapeutic alliance; family psychosocial assessments; trauma recovery goals; safe points of intervention; reframing; and bringing new information into the family system. There will also be an opportunity to learn more about the QPASTT Parenting Groups.

This is an interactive workshop based on practice experience. There will be discussion of case examples, opportunities to find out how different organisations support families and share ideas about "best practice" in working with families from a refugee background.
