Additional offerings at Putting Care at the Center 2023
On the morning of November 1, prior to the start of the conference, we will be offering two supplemental learning activities, RELATE and Addiction 101, as well as a guided site visit to a local non-profit that morning (learn more below). These in-person offerings are separate from registration but add to the conference experience. These offerings are at an additional cost to the conference registration. As these programs will run concurrently, registrants can only opt into one of these supplemental activities. Both RELATE and Addition 101 will include continuing education credits separate from those for attending the conference.
If you have any questions, please contact Carly Moore at [email protected].
RELATE: How to be a supervisor
RELATE: A reflective approach to supervising
We will be hosting a special pre-conference, in-person training on our RELATE supervisory framework on Wednesday, November 1, 2023 from 9 am – 12 pm ET. RELATE: A reflective approach to supervising is a three-hour training that will give supervisors of frontline staff the knowledge, tools, and experience to implement our RELATE supervisory framework. This is a live, instructor-led training, where you will learn concrete behaviors that will help you prepare your frontline staff to be more introspective, self-aware, and able to handle the emotional impact of complex care work. This unique learning experience will reshape the way you manage staff.
- Apply a supervisory framework that moves from directive to reflective through coaching, teaching, and guiding staff in complex care.
- Identify how the RELATE framework helps guide the formation of authentic healing relationships with caregivers and participants.
- Determine how the RELATE framework helps build resiliency and reduce burnout among frontline team members who engage people with complex needs.
- Demonstrate using the coaching quartet while providing feedback and reflective supervision.
- Apply RELATE to cases and situations.
Cost: $300 per person
Date: November 1
Time: 9 am -12 pm ET
