This workshop is suitable for all professionals who work with children and families, including early childhood educators and those working with families experiencing vulnerability. All workshops are available to regional and rural locations.
This workshop is underpinned by the Family Partnership Model. A number of research trials have demonstrated the positive benefits of the Family Partnership Model in enhancing the developmental progress of children, parent-child interactions and the psychological functioning of parents, families and children.
The Centre has facilitated this model across Australia and is the lead Australian collaborator with the model’s UK authors. This helps to ensure that quality standards in implementation and training fidelity are maintained.
The Centre for Community Child Health is a department of The Royal Children’s Hospital and a research group of Murdoch Childrens Research Institute.
