Today’s work environment requires collaborating with more than just the clients with whom you work. To provide effective support services, a team is needed to fully address the participant’s situation (housing, medical care, mental health, substance use, behaviors, etc.) and conflicting approaches can lead to confusion, which can cause services to be less effective. This can sometimes be described as conflict, and it delays progress. In this class, there will be discussion around what happens to us in situations where others may see things differently and utilize strategies to build a worker’s confidence. These strategies will also allow attendees to work toward congruence when those situations arise.
Diverse teams have multiple perspectives. Workers will need to be able to use an equitable and trauma-informed approach when building a coalition. Whether working with property management to secure housing or grass roots organizing, identifying shared values is essential for inclusion and partnership. Knowledge and regular practice of these skills can help continually refine these relationships, and gain insight and understanding.
