This webinar will outline helpful strategies to reach successful outcomes with families and includes the ‘how’, ‘when’ and ‘where’ of raising concerns, from identification of concerns, through to building a positive ongoing partnership with families.

Learn about:

  • Planning required to have a potentially difficult conversation
  • Managing your own emotions and those of the family
