Creative Case Planning for Parents with Depression
Registration: 8:30 a.m.
DESCRIPTION : Working with families where one of the caregivers suffer from a mental illness can be particularly challenging for the child welfare social worker. Often it is difficult to engage parents, keep them motivated and focused while keeping ourselves motivated, plus always keeping “child safety” the priority. This workshop will focus on those challenges and provide you an opportunity to problem solve around those issues. We will focus specifically on parents that suffer from depression. This workshop will consist of lecture, small and large group discussion, and case planning.
TARGET AUDIENCE: Child welfare professionals whose caseload includes parents with depression and other mental health diagnoses and who want to increase their skills in working with this population
