VIRTUAL CFR II - Expanded Course Descriptions
Adventure Facilitation/Community building: At the outset of the course, participants engage in a series of adventure initiatives designed to create the container and establish the emotional safety necessary for participants to engage fully with each other and prepare to enter into an experience that will foster both professional and personal, growth. In addition, the facilitation process is explored through the experiential learning model and exposure to seven generations of “giftwrapping.” Course material is introduced and both individual, and group goals, are established.
Stages of Change: Participants are introduced to the Stages of Change Model, with the emphasis being on identifying where individual clients they may work with fall on the continuum. This is followed by an applied discussion on how to engage with clients differently at each stage, including specific suggestions for intervention strategies, to support them in moving through the stages towards increased readiness to change.
Goals of Misbehavior: Based on the seminal work of Rudolph and Dreikers, the goals of client misbehavior are explored to determine the underlying needs that the client is trying to meet. Particular emphasis is placed on the staff member’s internal process and how this information can be utilized to help staff better understand clients and intervene more effectively.
Diversity Issues: In this experiential evening setting, the focus is on highlighting the importance of recognizing and acknowledging diversity issues, as well as the complexity of our cultural backgrounds. Staff engage in fun experiential activities that illustrate the concepts.
Critical Incidents: A review of critical incidents is utilized to help participants better appreciate the role of staff judgment in the process. Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) is introduced to familiarize participants with best practices in response to a critical incident.
Family Systems: A brief overview of family systems is presented to help participants to appreciate the role of the family in the issues that their clients present. A family sculpting exercise invites participants to identify how their own family system may be impacting their role as staff.
Reviews: These sessions offer participants the opportunity to synthesize and apply the vast amount of material covered during the course.
