Venue: Sydney (Salvation Army)
Presenter: Janet Irvine, Lisa Osborn (Settlement Services International)
Target Group: Community workers working with or wishing to engage in working with migrant and refugee families
In Australia, the area of working across cultures is no longer a specialist skill but central to all our practice. Participants will be introduced to a framework for culturally responsive practice and explore how this can be applied when working with migrant and refugee communities.


Date: 7 April 2017
Venue: Sydney
Presenter: Lea Crisante
Target Group: Any counsellor/therapist who is interested in working with couples presenting with typical relationship issues including fighting, loss of intimacy, conflict over specific, long standing issues and stage-specific concerns e.g. after the birth of children
This workshop will provide an introductory framework for how to conceptualise and conduct couple therapy sessions. Participants will be provided with ideas about how to structure the first and subsequent sessions, how to conduct an assessment of couple difficulties and how to develop interventions.


Date: 10, 11 April 2017
Venue: Sydney
Presenter: Judi Apte
