Are We Caring for Everyone? A Child Protection Symposium

Free for members!

On 10 March 2022, the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW), will be hosting Are We Caring For Everyone? Exploring Child Protection in Australia Symposium; a one-day event being held virtually from 10.00 AM to 4.00 PM (AEDT).

The Symposium will feature several keynote speakers and panel discussions, including time for attendees to engage in Q&A with all presenters.

The AASW regularly conducts pivotal industry events, spanning the many fields of social work practice, bringing together key industry, health and Government leaders to drive progress and positive outcomes.

Our priority is to see better outcomes for children and their families. Across the nation, the work being undertaken addresses some of the needs of the most complex and at-risk families and communities, many of which are strained under the enormity of the work which needs to be done to keep children safe. Often at the forefront of this work is the social work profession and this platform will provide the opportunity to continue these discussions.

The AASW Are We Caring For Everyone? Exploring Child Protection in Australia Symposium will seek to explore current child protection practice trends and research in the area, challenges faced by child protection social workers and how we can care better support frontline workers.

We are delighted to confirm all the speakers for Symposium.

There will be three panel discussions:

Panel One - Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Child Protection Conversation

Panel Two - Research and Practice Trends in the Child Protection Sector

Panel Three - Ongoing Workforce Challenges in Child Protection and Building Resilience for Frontline Practitioners


Registrations closed on Tuesday, 8 March 2022 at 5.00PM AEDT
