Engaging children as partners in practice to support their mental health and wellbeing webinar

Child Family Community Australia & Emerging Minds, Australia, 2018

This webinar was the second in a series focusing on children’s mental health. It was co-produced by CFCA and Emerging Minds.

In this webinar, Chris Dolman (Emerging Minds), Lisa Johnson (psychologist and teacher) and Dom Kleinig (Emerging Minds) drew on their years of experience in working with children and families to discuss the practices that they have found useful in creating genuine partnerships to support the mental health and wellbeing of children and their families.

This webinar was for practitioners who work with children, as well as practitioners who work with adults and who want to enhance their skills around engaging children. Learning outcomes included:

  • An understanding of the key intentions and purposes of building genuine partnerships with children and families in service provision and the ethics that inform these endeavours;
  • An exploration of some ideas and practices to support practitioners to build genuine partnerships with children;
  • An introduction to some of the useful tools and processes that can be readily implemented by organisations to support practice.
