Uptown Lunds & Byerleys

1450 West Lake Street

Minneapolis, MN 55408

This will be the second in a short series of salons focused on learning and practicing various consultation models. March’s salon will focus on learning the Lansen and Haans method of peer group supervision.  The Lansen and Haans method focuses on expanding a individual’s awareness and understanding of a case through the use of a supportive structure that reflects on both the experience of the provider and client. The structure aims to address secondary trauma and burnout associated with the specific case presented.

Objective: Participants will learn a problem solving consultation model for group consultation.  Participants will be able to facilitate using this consultation model.

1 CEU from the MN Board of Social Work will be awarded to participants.
