Sophie Guy [00:00:04] Welcome to the Emerging Minds podcast. My name is Sophie Guy, and I’m a Workforce Development Officer at the National Workforce Centre for Child Mental Health, where I create resources to help practitioners and families better understand and support children’s social and emotional wellbeing. Join me each fortnight as I speak with a wide range of practitioners, from GPs, to social workers, to psychiatrists on a variety of topics related to children’s mental health. For example, we’ll look at the issue of family violence and what it’s like to work with men who use violence. We’ll look at the story of how one organisation has successfully created a culturally authentic service for Aboriginal community. And I also talk with a psychiatrist about her journey to understand intergenerational transmission of trauma and how parent-child relationships can be healed. Other episodes explore things like adverse childhood experiences, the role of GPs in supporting child social and emotional wellbeing, and the power of play for strengthening parent-child relationships. Join me to gain practical wisdom and to learn more about what we can all do to support children’s mental health.
