Webinars

Our webinars inform families, communities and services of the latest developments affecting them and our approaches to these issues.

What is a Webinar?

Our webinars are live online presentations by a selected group of expert panellists, using the Zoom software platform. Participants are not able to see or hear other attendees but can ask questions of the presenters using the ‘Question and Answer’ feature. Questions are managed by a moderator, and may be shared with everyone or directed to the presenters only. Participants may watch the Webinar in Gallery View (the presenters in a tiled format) or Speaker View (the presenter currently talking). Webinars may be recorded for later viewing.

This two-hour webinar will introduce you to an understanding of culture from a First Nations perspective, especially in the context of colonisation. In particular we will explore the notion of cultural humility and its meaning and relevance when working with First Nations families in Australia.

This webinar will also give you an understanding of the unique and specific ways in which First Nations families have been impacted by colonisation and the consequent trauma effects, including how First Nations families have learnt to survive. This understanding will form the foundation for understanding ways to engage First Nations families effectively, safely, and respectfully. Specific ideas for what you need to be aware of and attend to if you are a non-First Nations worker will be explored.

This webinar highlights the relevance, usefulness, and impact of No Bullshit Therapy (NBT) ideas for services working with people who use family violence. Staff in a variety of sectors have contact with people who use violence, and this offers opportunities for difficult but important conversations that can be supported by NBT principles. In this webinar participants will learn how NBT offers a way to hold these tricky conversations that is balanced and neither colluding nor confrontational. Participants will also hear how NBT is aligned to other work in this area, such as Alan Jenkins’ Invitations to Responsibility, and so is suitable for working with adults who use family violence.
