Depending on the need, interventions by health and human service professionals may occur in a wide variety of contexts, including a family’s home. This workshop will focus on best practices for conducting safe and effective home visits. We will discuss strategies for building rapport and trust with family members, as well as what to do when critical signs suggest an unsafe situation is present. Learn about cultural considerations that are relevant to home visitation. Strategies will be shared for handling difficult situations such as the need to hotline, involve police, or leave a visit. Participants will learn methods to avoid stress and burn out. Class size is limited to 55.
This program is offered in conjunction with Washington University School of Medicine's Program in Occupational Therapy.
