    Family Intervention Generalist Competition # 1297

    Edmonton   |      February 28, 2018 12:00
     

    The Family Centre is looking for an individual who is interested in challenging, frontline social work, providing in-home support to high-risk children and families. This includes a significant proportion of Aboriginal, Metis and Inuit families and first generation Canadian families that have experienced the impacts of trauma and multigenerational abuse and neglect. The Family Intervention Generalist (FIG) was conceived in order to support the concept of Collaborative Service Delivery (CSD). The guiding principles of CSD are early engagement, family centered involvement, outcome based practice, collaboration and shared responsibility with Children Services and flexibility/innovation within the delivery of services.

    The Family Centre has been working with community partners to build long term, promotional approaches to reverse the trend that an increasing proportion of our community’s children are at high risk. In our efforts to address the increasing number of families that are disenfranchised we have developed a conceptual framework to focus on healthy and safe communities whereby children live, grow and develop in family settings. This model has five fundamental constructs.

    • Community based model: working both with formal clients those that have active files, with specific goals, status under the child and youth enhancement act and informal clients. A relational, community based framework allows for hundreds of relationships with children and families, some that never attain active status or come in and out of the system more fluidly building on the success of previous engagements.
    • Ecological Approach-Looking at the child within family, within the school and community. Attempting to build capacity in all of those areas to work towards sustainable change.
    • Resiliency Theory- Resiliency research has been helpful in providing us with a language or philosophical perspective. It has also given us a way to understand the correlation between protective factors (developmental strengths) and risk factors such as violence, addiction, sexual acting out. We believe the NOM and the resiliency research is compatible.
    • Collaborative Work: Collaborative approach honoring all professions and agencies. Raising children within community takes all of us. The key is how do we work together to continue to reduce funding, professional and practice silo’s.
    • Promotion/Prevention/Intervention/interdependence, the full spectrum of support is required to meet the goals of OBSD.
