Strong case planning skills can help front-line staff and outreach teams effectively break the cycle of entrenched homelessness by learning how to move their clients into a continuum of services. HSABC’s Introduction to Case Planning webinar is a valuable training tool that introduces the basic principles of the case planning process. The webinar explains how a front-line worker, or outreach team, can incorporate effective case planning techniques into their decision-making when working with challenging clients that seem resistant to change.
HSABC’s more advanced Case Planning II webinar teaches participants how to complete the required paperwork for BC Housing (Case Planning Forms). This webinar also reviews the purpose of each form and how best to approach completing these documents to ensure they become effective tools that drives the case planning process. The second half of HSABC’s Case Planning II webinar explores the ethics of case planning. Client autonomy, informed consent, impartiality and duty of care are ethical frameworks that are explored in this interactive, webinar learning experience.
