Jade Santa Maria, Senior Practice Development Officer/Senior Operational Policy Officer, Child Protection & Children in Care Policy, Department for Child Protection
I have postgraduate degrees in Social Work from UWA and Psychology and Health Sciences from Curtin University. Social Work has taken me across a pathway of career opportunities in child protection, foster care, adoptions, seniors interests and volunteering, children and youth, and premier & cabinet. It has been an amazing and learning experience in metro and regional from frontline child protection case investigations, case management; recruitment and tender panel; training facilitator, signs of safety court convenor, practice and policy, supervisor and mentor over 20 years. With these also come huge learning, dealing with conflict, accepting graciously, adapting, flexibility, mindfulness and “trying” to be emotionally intelligent with colleagues, staff, clients and others. Importantly: self-care! My best times are being with people who inspire like community elders, children and adults, and clients, listening to their stories; learning from them. It is about working alongside, learning from mistakes/judgement calls, and constantly learning and discovering. My message: turn adversities / brickwalls / challenges as stepping stones to reach desired dreams and goals.

At the Branch we need to make a call on whether a workshop is viable to proceed with at least 10 working days out from the day. With this in mind, if you want to attend one of our CPD opportunities, please do consider registering early... it also means you won't be left out if its a popular workshop with high demand.
