Engaging Clients using Therapeutic Interventions

Engaging Clients Using Therapeutic Interventions June 22 and 23, 2021

On June 22 and 23 SFNFCI was pleased to offer and deliver the six-hour training course, Engaging Clients Using Therapeutic Interventions. The training was delivered in two afternoon sessions using the Webex virtual meeting platform. Course facilitator Charlotte Ross lead the 24 participants throughout the training sharing her knowledge of the curriculum and engaging with the participants through discussion, breakout rooms, and incorporating activities. Knowledge Keeper Joe Naytowhow joined us both afternoons and shared his wisdom and knowledge with the group along with prayer and songs to open and close each day.

SFNFCI is able to deliver five of the core training courses in a virtual training format and this provides an opportunity for learners to participate from the comfort of their own home or office and reduces travel time and costs. This has been an especially important method for delivering training during the covid restrictions.

Engaging Clients Using Therapeutic Interventions, which is part of the core training package for Prevention and Group Homes, focuses on multiple ways of engaging clients to assist in creating healthy, safe, helping environments. Participants learn about the goal of therapeutic interventions, some basic interventions such as art therapy, play therapy and animal therapy, and how these can be beneficial for engaging families in relationship development.

This course is designed to equip learners to:

  1. Describe what is meant by Therapeutic Intervention.
  2. Describe the most frequent conditions that we see in clients that require us to know therapeutic interventions.
  3. Describe some well-known types of interventions.
  4. Explain how therapeutic interventions can be beneficial for engaging families in relationship development.
  5. Explain how culture can be used to provide therapeutic interventions for clients.
  6. Understand that children have unique needs when it comes to therapeutic interventions.
  7. Describe how to document a therapeutic intervention.
