This workshop is aimed at social care staff who are involved in working directly with families and maintaining case records.  It is an interactive session which encourages practitioners to consider how they critically reflect on the work they undertake with families, how they make decisions on what is relevant to record and how they produce records which meet the needs of families and their employing agency.


By the end of the session practitioners should be able to:-

  • Understand the importance of case note recording (including legal duties).
  • Understand and utilise methods which promote critical reflection when working with families.
  • Acknowledge the importance of unconscious bias when making case note records.
  • Develop structures and follow guiding principles when writing case notes records.
  • Understand the relationship between case note recording and identified outcomes (within plans) for family interventions.

In recent years we have seen a rapidly growing interest in the use of strength based approaches in health and social care. But what are strength based approaches and how can we apply them to our practice? This learning session is designed to provide you with an overview of the research and policy context of strength based practice and to introduce you to some strength based  tools, techniques and models  which you can apply to your practice.

Rachel McManus, Lecturer, Sheffield Hallam University will be delivering this session.  We are running this again due to previous high demand.   There are 50 places available and there is a small charge of £50 per place.
