Getting the most from your Clinical Consultations:

Caring Dads Facilitator Training includes 2 parts - the intensive two-day course presented in person, and 4 Clinical Consultations which follow this course and are delivered online in a distributed learning format. Each Clinical Consultation is not only a great opportunity to deepen your understanding of the Caring Dads program, but also share experiences with Facilitators from around the world. Each Clinical Consultation session comprises two parts:

  1. Live webinars with an Accredited Caring Dads Trainer

    On the “Schedule” tab, you’ll find a list of upcoming webinars on our channel. Since the webinar series is designed to offer clinical oversight and support to you as a new Facilitator, you should try and schedule the webinars for dates that closely match your own progress through your first facilitated Caring Dads group:

    • Clinical Consultation 1 focusses on weeks 1 - 3 of the Group Intervention program

    • Clinical Consultation 2 focusses on weeks 4 - 8 of the Group Intervention program

    • Clinical Consultation 3 focusses on weeks 9 - 14 of the Group Intervention program

    • Clinical Consultation 4 focusses on weeks 15 - 17 of the Group Intervention program

    We know that our Facilitators’ schedules are tight, and we try and populate our calendar to ensure that webinars are available at a variety of times, and across a variety of time-zones. You may complete the series of Clinical Consultations within a minimum of 4 months, and a maximum of 1 year after your Intensive 2 Day In-Person Training Course. Email us if you’re struggling to find suitable dates and times.

    Once you’ve registered for a webinar you will be emailed information to connect to the live session either by computer or by phone. After the webinar concludes you will again be emailed a link to a recording of that session to reinforce the day’s learning.

  2. Self-directed Study

Before each webinar, prepare by completing the relevant Self-Reflection Guides and watching the Best Practice Videos associated with that session. After the webinar, remember to complete the session’s Evaluation online. You may also wish to download the slides the Trainer used if you wish. You can access the resources for each session using the tabs above.

The Pro-Resources page has a wealth of additional supporting material that is frequently referred to in webinars and often referenced in the Theory Manual.

The Pro-Forum is a great place to ask questions or post comments about your progress. You can connect with other accredited Caring Dads Trainers and Facilitators, as well as our Community Manager (and also an Accredited Trainer) Sarah Webb, for support.

We love connecting with our Facilitators, Trainers and Partners on our social media channels - Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube & Facebook
