SACA X SANA:
WORKING 
SYSTEMATICALLY
IN COUNSELLING & CASE MANAGEMENT

In 2021, SACA and SANA embarked on a joint training by Dr. Timothy Sim in Family Therapy.

 

To encapsulate the rich learning from the training and concretise them into a practice-approach, a project group was started. Both SACA and SANA respectively took up a case each and explored ways of applying their learnings. The findings were summarised and showcased at an overseas conference.

The project group is working towards forming a practice guide for aftercare case managers working with families of clients.
