Shifting mindsets: How communication can shape early childhood outcomes

Tue September 7, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Shifting mindsets: How communication can shape early childhood outcomes

Hosted by Child Family Community Australia (CFCA), Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS) in partnership with NAPCAN and Telethon Kids Institute.

Whether it is written or verbal, communication can impact how we think, feel and relate to others. For child and family welfare professionals, the information we receive about clients can affect how we engage with them directly and how we work with other professionals in supporting child safety and wellbeing.

Making small shifts in the words we choose and the way we deliver them can prevent unintended reactions, improve message clarity and promote helpful responses.

This webinar will explore how adapting communication about early childhood can promote child safety, development and wellbeing. Specifically, it will consider:

  • How communication can shape the way professionals think and feel
  • How the language professionals use, and their communication style, can impact child safety, development and wellbeing – for better and worse
  • How to adapt communication practices to promote better outcomes for children and families.

This webinar will be of interest to professionals working with children and/or their caregivers across early learning and care services, family and relationship services and parenting programs.


  • Nat Kendall-Taylor, Chief Executive Officer at the FrameWorks Institute
  • Annette Fuller, Senior Project Officer for the B4 Early Years Coalition
  • Meron Looney, Northern Territory Manager NAPCAN
  • Facilitator: Rani Kumar, Head of Policy and Campaigns, NAPCAN
