Family Centred Practice in the Context of Working with Immigrants and Refugee Families
The workshop explores practical ways of moving practitioners towards services that are more closely aligned with a Family Centred Practice by discussing relational and participatory components, effective communication, help-giving, cultural diversity with respect to parenting and the role of parents and caregivers. We will explore what it means treating families with dignity and respect, honouring culture, values and choices, as well as how family centred practice can be linked to a wide range of benefits for both children and families in their new environment.
