21 Things You Need To Know To Be A Highly Effective Family Support Worker

In September 2013 I released a new training DVD for Family Support Workers called 21 Things I Need To Know To Be A Highly Effective Family Support Worker.

Here’s a little video clip about one of the topics ‘ breaking resistance ‘. Find out what I mean with that by clicking on the play button.

With ’The Family Support Worker’ I want to offer individuals and organisations who I have worked with some added value. The added value is that you can4465339 contact me with any additional questions you have regarding your practice.

Some of you have been trained in the Solution Focused method of working with families. I am very aware of that, if you are new with this method, it can be quite challenging as it goes against the way most of us naturally work. I will talk about that in a future post.

You can see this website as a free consultation. If you have any question regarding your role as a Family Support Worker, you can email them to me. Once I’ve received a few questions I will answer them in a video blog post.

I see my role to help you to be the most effective family support worker you can be.  I want to create an online community for Family Support Workers.

If you are interested in being part in this community please send an email to with in the subject header ‘ online community ‘. You will be added to our email list and you will receive an email from us as soon as we are adding a new training video or any other relevant information relating to your role as a Family Support Worker.

If you have any questions regarding the work you do with families please send an email to with in the subject header ‘ question for family support worker ‘.

Are you struggling with a particular family? Please email me with your question and I will provide you with an answer in the training videos.
