I have been working with children and families in some of the most vulnerable of circumstances since 2009 – in particular, with a FaCS funded program called the Brighter futures program offering services to children and their parents to overcome adversity.
I have particular experience working with families who have experienced trauma, domestic violence, grief, drug and alcohol dependence, chronic mental health issues and disability.
I also have experience leading adult education seminars and parenting programs; both to small groups and to large audiences. These seminars and groups have been educational; psycho-educational, and therapeutic in nature.
I have taught at TAFE for short courses in case management skills, and in community for a number of different topics including; group facilitation skills, parenting education, mindfulness, behaviour management, attachment and relationship development, and self-care and self-development.
