This is primarily for new case managers who would like to learn some basic, case management skills from their peers who have been working with people experiencing  homelessness for many years. The training will cover the following topics: Priorities & Poverty, Linda Simon, Sandoval County Shelter Plus Care Program Have you ever had clients who have chosen to do something like use their available cash to bail someone out of jail rather than to pay their rent? At times, people who are experiencing homelessness and poverty may make unexpected choices, choices which may seem, from a provider's prospective, difficult to understand. Understanding why, from the point of view of the person in poverty, clients may make such choices can help providers to create empathy, to build rapport and to assist cients in identifying priorities and goals, as well as to develop strategies for meeting those goals. This workshop is intended to offer insights into the choices made by people existing in "survival mode" and to explore ways these insights can serve to facilitate more productive relationships with clients, thereby helping to retain housing and become more self-sufficient. Basic Case Management, Whitney Conyers, Barrett Foundation This workshop will include examples and skill building related to interview, assessment, client interaction, treatment planning, managing conflict and compliance, discharge planning and documentation.
