Thursday May 11, 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
This two-part workshop (6 hours over two days) aims to assist practitioners to understand and explore theoretical frameworks and models that underpin advanced case management and how to assess and engage individuals and families who are experiencing complex and multiple issues in their case planning and goal setting.
