Family Violence In A Child’s World

Family Violence in a Child’s World

Family Violence in a Child’s World facilitated by UMFC’s Family Violence Child Safety Practitioners is a one day workshop that has been specifically developed for Early Childhood professionals to promote children’s wellbeing through building professionals’ capacity to:

  • Understand what family violence is, how it hurts children and how it impacts their overall development
  • Explore how what we think and feel influences how we work with children who are hurting
  • Recognise and respond to children’s feelings and behaviours – hearing the voice of the child and providing safe responses to their needs
  • Understand how to work safely with children who have/are thought to be experiencing family violence
  • Use of mindfulness & reflection to help engage meaningfully with children
  • Use books and other activities to help children express their emotions safely
  • Explore barriers and strategies for talking to parents about the worries we have for children
  • Know how to talk with parents and provide referral pathways for families in a safe and effective manner
