Back to Advanced Training 

Course Description

This is the second workshop in the series: “Effectively Working APS Cases for Persons Experiencing Homelessness”. The series is designed to provide APS professionals with knowledge, practical tools, opportunities to build empathy and gain a better understanding of what many individuals who are homeless experience  in order to work more effectively with this population.

The goal of this workshop is to build on the foundational concepts in Workshop #1 and provide opportunities to broaden APS professionals’ skills when working with people who are experiencing homelessness. These cases are often complex and this workshop allows participants to understand more about this complexity and see the intense reality they may endure when out in the field. Throughout this workshop, participants will take best practices from the field of Homelessness Outreach, tailor and apply them to the purpose of Adult Protective Services.
