Impact of Neglect on Our Children – CALD Focus

February 15 @ 8:45 am - 4:00 pm

This workshop will explore working with families from CALD communities to consider parenting within a cultural context.  This exploration will support an understanding of the factors that help to identify parenting practices, care that is ‘good enough’ as well as parenting and care of children that fits within the continuum of neglect.

How do we engage in conversations around the care and safety of children with CALD parents in ways that offer support?

This workshop addresses the different types of impact and neglect to enable workers to identify and respond effectively. The day will also provide an opportunity to explore and practice skills in engaging parents in culturally informed and respectful conversations that aim to support parents to provide the level of care and protection children require for positive development.


Who should attend this workshop?

For family workers, teachers, school counsellors, early childhood workers, youth workers, health workers – for all who are working with families and children.
