Working with Children and Families Post Separation and Divorce
March 26, 2019 @ 8:45 AM - 4:00 PM AEDT
Working with Children and Families Post Separation and Divorce: Keeping a Child in Focus in Family Law Proceedings When Relationships Breakdown Can Be Most Difficult
Come to this one-day workshop for the opportunity to strengthen your practice when working with families and children.
This workshop looks at child focused and inclusive practice, processes and strategies for supporting children and families through post separation and divorce.
The focus on children’s needs during this challenging time may be secondary to the needs of the adults. In this time of chaos, grief and significant change, children can feel unseen. Their desires for how their relationships may look post separation may not be prioritised.
This workshop will help increase your understanding of the roles and responsibilities of each part of the family law process. We will explore strategies on how to talk to parents about the impact of conflict on children.
This workshop aligns with the FaCS Targeted Earlier Intervention (TEI) priority of supporting vulnerable families and children.
