Symposium: “It’s not what you do, It’s the difference you make!”
Join your colleagues and peers as we return to live COVID-safe workshops,
with TWO of our most popular facilitators:
Mary Jo McVeigh and Angharad Candlin!
Mary Jo McVeigh OAM
BSSc (Hons), MSW, PhD candidate
CEO and Founder Cara House
Catholic Care Practice Manager
Engage in a critical reflexive discussion of bio-medical model of human suffering in relation to children and young people and the bio-political world of trauma intervention. Using a child rights model you will problematise the epistemic silencing of children and young people and look to a liberation model of intervention.
Explore the neurobiology of trauma and learn practical skills to work with clients who have a trauma history. Participants will have an opportunity to understand what can get in the way of working effectively with children and adults who have a trauma history and how they can work effectively with the system around these families such as Community Organisations and Schools.
Participate in our interactive Q&A session, meet our Aboriginal Workforce Development Coordinator, gain an understanding of creating an ‘outcome-focussed workplace culture’ and catch up with colleagues and peers from across our district.
Special Guest: Claudia Vianello,
Director Commissioning & Planning DCJ, WSNBM
