Understanding, Supporting and Accepting Families with Complex Needs

June 10, 2019

Deb Sunderland LCSW presented a framework for understanding families with complex needs.  Using Complexity Theory she facilitated a conversation that explored the complexity of the family, the system home visitors work in, and the role they engage in. Participants explored how Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) may be useful tools for the work of the home visitor. In the second half of the day attendees engaged in small group discussions using case examples from home visitors.
