PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT

Staff training and professional development are critical to our collective competence as an agency. Through continuous training, we educate others and ourselves about the treatment of kids and families. The Adelphoi Training Program, provided through the efforts of fellow staff members, encourages individual and group growth, while helping our agency evolve through the process of setting and achieving goals.

The responsibility to implement training skills in our work belongs to all of us. In our role as team members, and in each job position, it is through these principles that each individual and team can greatly enhance the impact of Adelphoi on the lives of those we serve:

  • Primary job training is a responsibility shared between the staff, supervisor, team members and the formal training program.

  • The focus and direction of our staff training is based on the changing needs of the youth, families, and communities served. We educate ourselves on these needs, and respond to them.

  • Self-evaluation is vital to the improvement of skills. Staff at Adelphoi openly give, seek, and accept feedback as a primary way of increasing our effectiveness.
