Interviewing Techniques: Approaching the Unapproachable

ID: 4738

When an interview runs into challenges, the tendency to attribute cause for the unsuccessful exchange to the interviewee is natural. However, challenging exchanges, particularly in the helping profession, rely heavily on the interviewers proper and thorough assessment of personality types as well as genuine recognition of his/her own conscious or subconscious biases and their role in communication. The training breaks down various client/family types and how successful exchange relies heavily on the approach of the interviewer. Various strategies are reviewed and practices to encourage more productive interviews, and improved overall engagement and partnering with families.

The Comprehensive Assessment and Case Plan: Development, Implementation and Evaluation

ID: 4501

The case plan is a partnership agreement between the case manager and the client. Its development and implementation require a complex set of activities usually involving several areas of need and several providers. Participants in this interactive 2-day workshop will use a case study assessment from which reasonable, specific and measurable goals will be developed as a first step in formulating a case plan. Resource identification, linkages to services, advocacy to eliminate barriers, as well as the complexities of the case management relationship and ethical dilemmas will be explored as the plan moves into the intervention phase. Follow-up, monitoring, interagency coordination, and reassessment will allow the participant to determine whether the plan developed yesterday, still works for the client today. And finally, outcome evaluation will let the participants assess whether the client has measurably benefited from the case management relationship.
