45: Working With Families of Children Who Use Violence - Reflective Practice in a Delicate Space

October 20, 2020

Join our hosts Mim and Lis for something a little different - a conversation with a social worker who shares insight into her unique practice space, working with the families of children who use violence against their parents. This social worker talks about the value of reflective practice, and discusses the importance of learning from both the successes and failures that we have along the way. There's also helpful discussion on looking for the family members who tend to be forgotten in the midst of responding to behavioural issues. We think you'll enjoy this episode, and can't wait to hear your feedback!
