HFU offers webinar on Assertive Engagement

Often the individuals most in need of our services are the very folks most hesitant to work with us. Past disappointments by other providers, as well as mental health symptoms and substance use patterns can create a lengthy and challenging engagement process.

This training will present an overview of best practices for engagement and initiation of services for individuals experiencing homelessness. Facilitators will discuss the goals of engagement, tips for building rapport, creative strategies for those facing barriers to care, and relevant evidence-based practice skills. Through review of case studies and real client scenarios, attendees will learn that the most important thing we can do for our participants is to continue to show up.

This webinar will occur on August 9th, 2022 at 2:00 pm ET
