In the blink of an eye we are almost halfway through 2017. Which means if you haven’t started working on your professional development goals for this year then you had better get onto it quickly!
CCWT has some amazing workshops coming your way in July. One of our new courses, Walking with Clients through Pregnancy and Birth, will give you information and perspectives on pregnancy and birth to help support your clients during a time of significant transition.
For professionals working in out-of-home care, join us for Transition from Care-Planning to Leave Care, where you will get to explore the impact of transition from care on young people.
