This Workshop draws on research and evidence about best practice in relation to Restoration work from the UK, US and Australia, as well as referring to the NSW Department of Community Services Structured Decision Making (SDM) Model for Restoration Assessment.

This Professional Development workshop will explore the complexities of working to restore children and young people to families following abuse, neglect and harm.


By attending this workshop you will:

  • (1) Increased knowledge of research and best practice around restoration;
  • (2) Increased confidence in developing a restoration plan and giving a view on the process;
  • (3) Increased understanding of some of the complex issues that need management and attention during a restoration;
  • (4) Clear understanding of the different roles and positions to be taken to support restoration.

We will also explore the impact of attachment disruptions and expectation differences children will have from their experiences of Out of Home Care and how these need to be managed throughout the restoration process.
