Please join us on April 21, 2020, for the fifth webinar in the *Effective
Outreach and Engagement* series. Outreach and engagement require a rich set
of interpersonal tools and deep understanding of what it means to engage
with someone who is struggling with significant vulnerabilities. Direct
service providers and outreach workers will learn evidence-based practices
and skills related to reaching out to and assisting a diverse population
experiencing homelessness, including those with serious mental illness
(SMI), substance use disorders (SUDs), or co-occurring disorders (CODs).
Webinar 5, *Addressing Homelessness: Person-centered Engagement and Secure
Outreach Strategies*, will explore the unique experiences, perspectives,
and safety needs of service recipients whose vulnerabilities may increase
their risk of violence and injury from the general public. At the same
time, service recipients may lash out due to circumstances beyond their
control. This session will share tried-and true tips for maintaining a safe
balance during outreach and engagement activities.
Presenters will include:
- Sherri Downing, Deputy Director of SAMHSA's HHRN
- Deb Werner, M.A., Senior Program Manager, Advocates for Human Potential
HHRN's Kate Rio will moderate. Participants will have an opportunity to ask
questions, which will be addressed at the end of the presentation. A link
to the recording will be made available.
