Last month, NAPCAN’s National Manager Prevention Strategies, Lesley Taylor hosted a webinar along with Derek McCormack from the Parenting Research Centre in partnership with the Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS).
The webinar was attended by 1050 individuals and discussed new research on effective ways to talk about parenting. It introduced new tools to help put children first in our conversations about parenting, and outline practical steps to help apply this child-centred approach in practice. The webinar also featured case examples to illustrate how this approach has been applied in various ways, including in early childhood settings, youth-serving organisations, out-of-home care services and in rural and remote communities.
Some of the positive feedback received from participants:
Fantastic quality – one of the more engaging webinars I’ve attended. The conversational aspect of it was a really nice touch.
– Evaluation and Strategic Projects Manager, Vic.
I found it concise and relevant to the topic promoted. It did not assume too much knowledge of the participants, and it gave practical examples of how to utilise the information.
– Social worker, SA
The information given in the seminar was easy to understand and engaging. Thank you.
– State government, SA
It was great. I liked that practical information was provided rather than getting bogged down in statistics.
