Through combining important messages from Signs of Safety, Bringing Up Great Kids and Safe From the Start, this program will support professionals to:

  • Understand what Family Violence is & how it hurts children.

  • Explore how what we think & feel influences how we as professionals work with children who are hurt.

  • Use books & other activities to help children express their emotions safely.

  • Use mindfulness & reflection to help us to talk meaningfully with children.

  • Build skills in seeing & understanding children’s feelings & behaviours.

  • Explore the barriers of talking with parents about the worries we have.

  • Find out what referral pathways are available to support the families you are worried about.

Feedback from previous participants identify:

  • “I really enjoyed when we made the web of worries with the wool, it opened my eyes up to the big picture”
  • “I will be less inclined to make quick assumptions and will look at the big picture, the whole child, their support network and the family”
  • “The heart really brought home to me why victims stay and it has just made me realise the need to keep asking the question”

NOTE: This training links to the EYLF learning outcomes 1: Children have a strong sense of identity, and learning outcome 5: Children are effective communicators.
