Working collaboratively with families is sometimes challenging. The focus of this training is understanding multiple perspectives; identify components of building positive relationships, and supporting collaborative work both in harmonious times and also when problem-solving is needed. Understanding contemporary families will provide a foundational understanding for this interactive training.
