Live Classroom

Complex Cases

Discuss your own complex cases with Professor Richard Rose.

Tickets cost: £50 for non-members

This practical workshop will provide an opportunity to explore 'live', complex cases with Professor Richard Rose.

All those registered for this live classroom will be invited to send in anonymous real case studies involving complex issues and these will be incorporated into the session. Professor Richard Rose will then offer guidance and practical tasks to support your work and approaches.

All cases discussed will be anonymised and we ask for all attendees to agree to not discuss the cases outside of the session.

What will I take away from this Live Classroom?

  • A new perspective, techniques, shared ideas and a series of strategies to immediately put into practice.
  • An understanding of cases from a variety of perspectives
  • A range of techniques and strategies that support effective case work
  • Awareness of approaches to use in planning and families assessment to affect best outcomes for children

This training is aimed specifically at social workers and practitioners undertaking and supporting direct complex case work.
