My Kids & Me:
My Kids and Me: Strengthening relationships with kids in care
The course aims to increase reflective functioning and improve relationships between parents whose children are in statutory care and their children, carers, caseworkers and other professionals who may be involved. The course is psycho-educational in nature which allows for therapeutic “moments of change”. The course is highly experiential and uses metaphors and imagery to speak about things that are often too painful and difficult to put into words. My Kids and Me is a seven-week course for parents whose children have been placed in care either permanently or where restoration is part of the case plan. The course covers the following topics:
Each Tuesday 10am-12pm
10 October 2017 - 21 November 2017

Using Technology to complement our work with families:
As part of their Community Grants program, Glencore has kindly sponsored the purchase of 2 iPads for our Family Workers to use with their work with families.
We are able to utilise this technology to support our current work with families in parenting program videos and clips, domestic violence education, applications that support children with speech difficulties, and music that promotes movement and connection between family members.
A huge thank you to Glencore for their support in our work with local families.
