Learn to help families make decisions together

This year the Centre will offer two two-day training sessions in a participative and human rights influenced approach to decision-making in families. Sessions on 21–22 February, and on 20–21 June, will be led by Angela McCullagh, a recognised authority in Family Group Conferencing, in which Angela has worked for the past 15 years.

The approach helps family members and their supporters to make decisions and propose plans relating to the welfare of one of their own. It is a practice that appeals to working with a broad range of clients – for example, in the areas of kinship, family separation, education, youth justice, early childhood, the aged and child protection.

With careful preparation and duty of care to participants, Family Group Conferencing has yielded positive outcomes working for those who are affected by mental health, disability, loss and grief, substance misuse, family violence and child abuse.

To find out more, download the PDF flyer, which also includes a registration form. Registrations are encouraged at least two weeks before the training takes place.
