CFC #4 Local Leadership Team Reflective Series 2023


This is an ongoing professional development series designed to use reflection-based case consultation to explore work with EI clients, other providers and intersecting systems. Reflection-based work is a process where reassurance comes from encouraged autonomy, capacity building and intentional self-awareness. Vignettes and field experiences will be explored using a facilitated group process with adherence to reflective practice principles. Consideration of the “use of professional self” as an essential practice tool to inform and enhance service delivery will be emphasized. Each series topic will utilize the FAN approach for engagement, be sensitive to cultural diversity, practitioner diversity, and overall needs of the series participants. Practitioners will present current cases focusing on strengths, challenges, and self-determined next steps. The consultation meeting will be facilitated by the CFC Social-Emotional Consultant or a member of the CFC #4 SSIP Local Leadership Team (LLT).
