Grow: Skills Toolbox Workshops in 2019

February 01, 2019 at 10:48 AM

From Grow Ltd

Skills Toolbox - practical workshops to enhance your skills, in the Mental Health, Health, Social Services, Corrections and Education Sectors.

These workshops are aimed at practitioners who want to expand their abilities to support and assist service users – many of whom may be in distress. Underpinned by the latest research and best practice, these workshops aim to provide you with practical tools that you can use with clients the very next day.

The presenters in each workshop are subject matter experts and practitioners themselves, and they share our vision that we can support service users better, and improve outcomes by building local capability across New Zealand.
