Event description

Description

Brook is situated right next door to Brookside Shoppingtown. Entry to car park is off Osborne Road.

MAIN AGENDA ACTIVITY: TBD

It is always a good idea to bring along a copy of the code of ethics and practice to Supervision sessions as this is an excellent opportunity to familiarise ourselves with the content and to begin making the document an essential component of our resource kit.

CHAIR: Judith Boyland

NOTES: Cathy McGovern

Come along and enjoy a few hours of professional collegiality as we navigate the complex web of working with issues associated with domestic/family violence. Those who have the time, are invited to stay on and continue conversation and networking over lunch – great company and an excellent way to get to know other members of our association while also developing professional friendships and professional networks. The hotel chef has put together for us a comprehensive selection of yummy food: all meals costed at a special discounted price of $13.00 and served to us in the privacy of our meeting place, the Tennyson Room. It is always fantastic when as many members as possible can linger over lunch and get to know each other in a more intimate and casual setting.

REMITTANCE FOR MEETING ATTENDANCE: Contribution of a folding note ($5 OR $10) to help cover cost of room hire and any associated expenses.

SCOPE OF PRACTICE: Hard Copies of the Scope of Practice document are available for purchase – $25.00 cash or credit card

NOTE RE ATTENDEES:

ü A non-member who is considering applying for membership to ACA is welcome to attend one meeting as our guest.

ü Due to the confidential and sensitive nature of aspects that are sometimes raised in discussion, all attendees must be Counsellors, Psychologists, Social Workers, members of an allied profession or students of an associated discipline. It is professionally inappropriate for non-industry related persons to be in attendance.

ü Regional or Inter-State members, always welcome

Attendees are advised that Brook has comfortable motel style accommodation. Those who are travelling in from the regions or driving up from NSW may choose to come to town on Friday evening to save that early morning trip on Saturday. Distance members might also choose to consider staying over Saturday evening and taking in a movie or theatre experience and then driving home well rested on the Sunday morning.

PROTOCOL FOR ENTERING HOTEL: We gather in the Tennyson Room. Those who are familiar with our venue, simply make your way across to the Tennyson Room, which will be open from approximately 9:00am. For those who are joining us for the first time – upon arrival, just look for our ACA banner which will be strategically placed adjacent to the hotel Reception Office which is at the hotel end of the undercover pathway linking the motel units to the main hotel building. If you look across the lawn, you will see the ACA banner. Walk across the lawn to the covered walkway that links the accommodation units with the hotel reception, enter reception foyer and the Tennyson room is directly on your left.

Should you choose to park in the Brookside parking lot, head to the opposite side of the circular building where you will see the covered walkway linking the motel units with the hotel reception. As per above directions, the Tennyson room is to the left of the reception foyer.
