Back to Advanced Training 

Course Description

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

In this first workshop, APS professionals will learn some fundamentals on the experience of homelessness and explore biases when working with this population. After completing this first workshop, participants will have the foundation to better assess barriers for each individual they work with and help those individuals increase their protective factors such as resiliency and self-care.
