Epigenetics – Current Findings and New Practice[POSTPONED]

This face-to-face interactive workshop follows LEADs successful Epigenetics – Not Fixed in Stone Event held in late 2019.

Workshop content will focus on three key areas: epigenetics as an expression of genes, how understanding this can inform our practice, including in an understanding of Protective Factors.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn how epigenetics provides a framework for understanding how the expression of genes is influenced by experiences and the environment to produce individual differences in behaviour, cognition, personality, and mental health;
  • Gain deeper understanding and increase confidence and skills linking epigenetics to your practice, in how you work with children, young people and families, and
  • Identify protective factors that can be used in practice.

LEad Many Countries, One Water by Chris Tobin
Artwork by Chris Tobin, commissioned by LEAD to create an original piece of art that reflects who we are and what we do. Titled “Many Countries, One Water”, the artwork represents the diversity and the connectedness across the communities in which we work. Reproduced with permission and gratitude.


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.
