Event description

Description

This one day training will present advanced practice approaches which challenge the assumptions underpinning the experienced practitioner’s work with infants and children, whilst elevating the new worker’s confidence, passion and desire to learn more about, and be bold in reflective engagement with the vulnerable child and their family.

Dr Wendy Bunston is a vibrant and passionate speaker who runs wb training and consultancy and is an associate teacher at La Trobe University, Victoria, Australia. She previously managed the multi-award winning Addressing Family Violence Programs (AFVP) in the Integrated Mental Health Program of Melbourne’s Royal Children’s Hospital for some 16 years as well as working as a senior clinician and consultant family therapist.

Wendy recently completed her PhD looking at How Refuge provides 'refuge' to Infants: Exploring the ways in which ‘refuge’ is provided to, and experienced by, infants entering crisis accommodation with their mothers after fleeing family violence. She specialises in working with infants, children and their parents impacted by family violence. Wendy provides clinical supervision and training to multiple early childhood services across Melbourne. She is a senior clinical social worker with a Master’s Degree in Family Therapy and further post graduate qualifications in Organisational Dynamics and Infant Mental Health. Wendy is the author of multiple international articles, chapters and books regarding infants, children, family violence and relational trauma. Wendy’s book, “Helping Babies and Children to heal after Family Violence” was reased in May 2017.

Helping Babies and Children Aged 0-6 to Heal After Family Violence: A Practical Guide to Infant- and Child-Led Work.

"I hope this will be a resource that you may find useful for your work. I also hope that you might feel confident to pass this information onto others who work with not only infants and children directly but work with any family impacted by family violence. It draws directly from my practice as an infant and child mental health practitioner for over twenty years, as a family therapist for over twenty-five years and from my current work as both a therapist, and as a consultant to multiple practitioners working in the early years."
