28 September 2018 2018 NQLD - Family Violence - Seminar Presented by Christine Craik, AASW National President
Seminar

Family Violence

Seminar Presented by Christine Craik, AASW National President

​​​​The North Queensland Branch is delighted to announce AASW National President, Christine Craik, Lecturer in Social Work at RMIT University presenting this valuable training opportunity for professional service providers in Cairns.

Christine will provide an initial introduction, updating participants on the work of the AASW in relation to family violence advocacy and reform.

In this training, Christine will share her expertise in successful, evidence-based models of practice in family violence.

Current research demonstrates that not only are workers often unable to identify the presence of family violence, they often misidentify the aggressor and in the process of this, are unintentionally colluding with the perpetrators. The misidentification leads to increased risk, silencing of victim/survivors and systems abuse in the ways in which we practice as social workers.

Meeting

Attachment Theory Practice Group

presented by Anabel Wyndham

A working knowledge of attachment, like brain structure and function, is central to the understanding of Social Workers working with children, adolescents and adults. Its operation is not always obvious and prominent, but it gives us insights into personal functioning and relationships when we use it as a viewing prism, particularly when people are in trouble or stressed.
