“ Everything, my job is different everyday. I get to work with a range of people within the agency, the community, the province and some times in many different countries.”
“Nothing.” “ I really enjoy every aspect of my job.”
“Causes are polyfactorial, that is involve many factors; including social, developmental, psychological, legal, economical, and political.”
“Working from an anti-oppression framework; having the ability to use evidence (assessment tools and research) to inform services; motivational interviewing skills; good clinical insight; knowledge about human development.”
“Good sound assessment; Assessment battery has to be composed of several sources of information; clinical training; Identification of family’s support; Available community services that can assist; and, Agency to deliver services.”
“They perhaps need to know that it takes a community to help families; One agency can not do it alone; Agencies must form collaborations with one another to assist families within the community.”
“It all comes from the ministry (government).”
