$220.00 inc. GST

Date: 24/03/2022

Time: 9.30am - 12.30pm (AEST)

Working with complex individuals who have engaged with Corrections requires a strengths-based approach in order to build clients’ resilience  and help them to successfully integrate and feel supported to move forward. One of the first steps when applying a strengths-based approach is to challenge our own perceptions and ideas and acknowledge clients’ capacity for change.  This workshop looks at how to apply a strengths-based approach and engage positively with a Correctional cohort through examining evidence-based practice strategies.


Learning outcomes

In this workshop, participants will learn:

  • how personal perceptions can impact working with a Correctional cohort
  • strategies for applying strengths-based practice with a Correctional cohort
  • about creating capacity for change through resilience-building strategies
  • about the role of psycho-educational programs and strengths-based models
  • about the challenges of working with a complex cohort and understanding how strengths-based practice can build motivation and engagement
  • how to separate empathy from collusion when working with a Correctional cohort.


Ideal for

Professionals working with a Correctional cohort and/or supporting families.
