#20210120- WEBINAR: [FOR PROFESSIONALS] Being a Permanency Competent Professional: What Does That Mean and How Do I Do It?
(January 2021) There is a lot of conversation of late about permanency competent work but what does this really mean? In this workshop, we will explore the components of being permanency competent including things such as the weaving of the permanency blanket, claiming, understanding and decoding behaviour, supporting parents in parenting children/youth who have experienced trauma. This workshop will provide opportunities for learning and self-reflection/deliberate practice relating to your growth as a permanency competent professional.
