Project Description

Shared Understanding

Shared Understanding utilises an integration of risk awareness, quality risk assessment and collaboration to enable a more meaningful understanding of relevant factors impacting the client and their support system when navigating complex issues.

Risk awareness requires a broad understanding of diverse values and concerns that inform the meaning and nature of risk from the perspectives of the client, practitioners and other key stakeholders.

Quality risk assessment is embedded in key foundations that enable identification and targeting of relevant risk and protective factors that can reduce the risk of harmful outcomes and support safety and wellbeing.

Informed by contemporary evidence, participants will learn:

  • Advanced skills in assessing risk (relevant to the client and situation)
  • Advanced skills in safety planning (targeted, relevant and practical)

This course is part one of a two part program titled RESPONDING TO RISK, CO-CREATING SAFETY
