Making The Conversation Matter: Talking about parenting, children and family with parents who live with mental health challenges
Having collaborative conversations with parents with mental health challenges about their parenting can be a powerful preventative opportunity. Such conversations can facilitate new insights for both parents and practitioners alike, promote shared understandings, result in agreed goals and serve as the catalyst for effective change. Being able to have such conversations, at critical times such as when parents are involved in family law matters, is essential.
WA Family Law Pathways Network invites you to join us for a workshop with our 2019 WAFLPN Annual Conference Keynote Speaker Rose Cuff. This morning workshop will provide participants with practical strategies and resources to facilitate conversations that matter with parents with mental health challenges. There will also be opportunities for experiential learning.
