  • ​​​Do you want to grow your team’s ability to run Single Session Family Consultations (SSFC)?   

  • Would you like to train people to use the SSFC framework?


The Single Session Family Consultation (SSFC) Train the Trainer (TtT) two-day workshop will be held in Christchurch on 21 and 22 May. SSFC is a tool that helps you meet your ‘engaging with whānau KPI’ and assists your team to work safely and confidently with whānau. SSFC is appropriate for people working in adult services as well as child and youth services. 


When you participate in the course you will:  

  • Learn to deliver the one-day SSFC training (face-to-face or online)   
  • Be supported to deliver your first workshop   
  • Receive ongoing access to resources and maintenance training   
  • Be able to join the quarterly SSFC trainers’ meetings


To participate in the course, you will need to:  

  • Have your manager’s support to become a trainer  
  • Have completed a one-day SSFC training course  
  • Have a date for the first workshop that you intend to deliver 


Once you register, we will ask you to provide the date of your ‘basic’ training, the date when you expect to deliver your first course, and the name of your manager. This information shows your commitment to delivering the training and that you have the support of your organisation.

We’re committed to supporting you long term via sessions with other trainers, resources, mentorships, and co-delivery of training.  

We hope to get trainers from a range of services, please contact Karin Isherwood [email protected], if you have more than two people from your service who would like to attend the training.  


Venue: This is an in-person event in Christchurch with the venue to be determined.
