LEAD is partnering with theAustralian Childhood Foundationto transform the practice capacity of the workforce supporting children, young people, families and communities in NSW.
Through a range of professional growth and well-being programs, our joint aim will be to equip and empower every practitioner with the knowledge and tools to effectively support healing relational repair and enrichment for children, young people, families and communities.
This one-day in-person workshop will provide practitioners with increased understanding of the impact of childhood trauma, the neurobiology of trauma and how it manifests biologically. By using the internationally acclaimed TECA tool, practitioners will learn how to provide therapeutically matched responses which are adaptable to the context of your role. This assessment can be used by ANYONE and provides activities which offer opportunities for relational repair and enrichment.

LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
