Upcoming Training: Prosocial Modelling & Collaborative Family Work

Social Futures is planning a professional development workshop on Prosocial Modelling and Collaborative Family Problem Solving: Effective practice with involuntary clients, 31 July-2 August in Grafton.

In particular, reductions in re-offending by as much as 50 percent have been seen among  offenders supervised using pro-social modeling principles.
