How infant-led practice in family violence settings can nurture hope for infants and families

Child Family Community Australia & Emerging Minds, Australia, August 2022

This webinar will be of interest to practitioners working in the child, family, health, accommodation and housing sectors who encounter or directly work with infants, toddlers and families within the context of domestic and family violence.

Recognising the interdisciplinary practices that contribute to safety and care for infants experiencing family and domestic violence this webinar will:

  • Discuss practices that support the infant as an active agent of change in working with families experiencing family and domestic violence.
  • Explore how infant observations and respectful curiosity can support parents and infants to describe their stories of hope and resilience.
  • Consider how preverbal infants communicate with their parents and how they make meaning of their experiences of trauma.

The webinar was facilitated by Vicki Mansfield and the presenters were Wendy Bunston, Kristin Walsh and Tauri Smart.
