Staff who work directly with family systems obtain an overview of family work concepts consistent with many of the principles that underlie such Evidence-Based Practices (EBP) as functional, structural, brief strategic, and multi-systemic family work. Better understand such theoretical concepts/principles including: Pain in the Heart Theory (PITH); address assessment specific to exploring and identifying the underlying issues in the family including family violence, family needs, strengths, and resources. This prepares the worker to move forward with how to support the youth in the safest and healthiest manner while working with families.
