Description

Talking about parenting:

- Launch of a new resource to support practitioners

In partnership with the Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS) and the Parenting Research Centre (PRC), the National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (NAPCAN) is delighted to invite you to this year’s National Child Protection Week event in Melbourne.

National Child Protection Week 2019 is underpinned by recent research from the FrameWorks Institute that highlights the importance of the way we talk about parenting.

Starting conversations with a focus on child developement and what children need can set us on the right track when talking with parents.

Join us for this National Child Protection Week event as we:

  • learn more about the FrameWorks Institute research The Science of Parenting and how it can help us achieve better outcomes for children

  • launch a new resource to support practitioners in adopting the new research

  • hear real-life examples of how the research is being implemented

  • find out why myths and metaphors matter, and why images of boats and lighthouses are popping up all over the place

Speakers include:

  • The Hon Luke Donnellan, Victorian Minister for Child Protection

  • Anne Hollonds, Australian Institute of Family Studies

  • Derek McCormack, Parenting Research Centre

  • Lesley Taylor, National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect

The event will be of interest to organisations working with children and families, including management, practitioners and communications staff.

Tea & coffee available on arrival at 9.15am for a 9.30am start. Followed by networking morning tea until 11.30am.
