Online Workshop: Supporting Separated Families

This workshop is designed for workers in community and health organisations and schools who regularly work with children, adolescents and/or their parents. When parents separate, it can be a difficult time for them and their children. It is normal for separating families to experience a range of strong emotions and families often need to adjust to new living arrangements.

In this workshop, you will learn about the separation process, how it impacts on parents and children and how you can assist parents, children and adolescents to manage this change within your work setting.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • demonstrate knowledge of the separation process and the impact on families and children
  • demonstrate knowledge of the family law system and family dispute resolution.
  • develop an ability to identify behaviours in children resulting from separation and strategies to manage these behaviours.
  • develop in supporting parents to better manage their separation and support their children
  • develop the ability to identify when families need more support.

Ideal for

Community organisation workers, school staff, health professionals, youth workers, child and family workers, and counsellors.
