Learn how to establish empowering relationships, assess complex problems, select problem-solving interventions, and help vulnerable children and young people to function effectively. Case management is an approach to arranging and coordinating care in its broadest definition. It is based on the recognition that a trusting and empowering direct relationship between the case worker and the client is essential to advance the client’s use of services along a continuum of care, and to restore or maintain the client’s independent functioning to the fullest extent possible.

A case worker needs to have the capacity to provide assistance in a sensitive and supportive manner to particular client populations based on a knowledge of human behaviour and well-developed observational and communication skills. With this foundation, a case worker establishes helping relationships, assesses complex problems, selects problem-solving interventions, and helps clients to function effectively. This then creates a therapeutic process. Participants will be introduced to effective case management methods and develop key strategies to strengthen casework practice.
