What practitioners and programs are saying about The 3-5-7 Model®
What agencies are saying about using the 3-5-7 Model®
“This model truly helps to bring the field of social work back to where it needs to be – directly with the family. But further, it now includes the information, knowledge, tangible tools, and clarity of HOW to effectively help children – and families – to 'do the work'.”
“The 3-5-7 Model® has helped us shift our strategies from individual work with young people to family centered engagements.”
“Coaching sessions are very supportive and model a safe environment for case workers to learn and develop their skills. We all learn from the group coaching sessions.”
"I enjoyed the examples and real life experiences shared within the training that made the 3-5-7 Model® come to life. I looked forward to interacting with new co-workers from different perspectives and departments to learn more about how to incorporate the 3-5-7 Model® within our everyday work."
"Thank you so much, Darla! This was so informative!! It will help me so much in my interactions with our 9 year old :)"
"This was a very excellent message and we are glad we got to be a part of it. I love the story telling ideas."
"The ideas of the 3-5-7 Model® were so encouraging to me as a foster and adoptive Mom! Thanks! Have you written a book? If not, START! lol! Thanks Again!"
"Darla, thank you so much for choosing to share your learnings with us."
"The 3-5-7 Model® is effective in helping me guide youth toward their goals."
"I really enjoyed the breakout about discussing tough issues. It really provided me with a "light bulb" moment and the various reactions children may have, along with the importance of keeping the discussions going. Conversations like these can be hard because we want to protect children and keep them from hurt but we know that life throws us different things, especially children who have had to come into foster care."
"I learn something new each training and Darla Henry is amazing!"
"This training seems to be a good model for the children we work with."
