Who should attend:  Leadership and management teams of  Stark County behavioral health service providers and System of Care partners which include Family Court, Developmental Disabilities, Job and Family Services, Educational Service Center and schools.

About the workshop: Approaching families as partners in our work leads to better engagement, consistency in follow through with services, and ultimately better outcomes for children, youth and families. However, it can be challenging to shift to a family-driven approach, and it takes time, intentionality, and healthy discomfort to build those partnerships.  Pulling on research, best practices, and time proven strategies from the field, this workshop will highlight how partnering with families benefits you in your role and offer guidance and strategies for implementing this effectively at the service, organizational and policy levels.
