Conversations at the Kitchen Table

Length2 days
Who is it for?Human service professionals, counsellors, social workers
Key OutcomesSupportive and therapeutic parenting education

Course Description

Over two days explore seven reflective parenting conversations that are child focused, intentional, trauma-informed and psycho-educational. To support children to heal from trauma, we need to work with their parents; increasing their knowledge, skill and confidence in their parenting. Learn the art of talking to parents about parenting to assist them to meet their child’s needs.

All participants will receive a Conversations at the Kitchen Table Handbook for guidance and easy reference. The A5 sized handbook is designed for front line workers to carry with them so that at any time, they can, through respectful conversation, provide information and tips to strengthen parent’s ability to focus lovingly on their children, despite the current crisis of homelessness.

Learn practical exercises to help regulate ’big feelings’, such as breathing exercises which are designed to move children and their parent into a ‘regulated’ zone, to better strengthen conversations and relationships.

Drawing on the Therapeutic Parenting Programs developed by Relationship Australia South Australia’s Post Adoption Support Service. This Reflective Parenting Resource was designed and developed by the Together4Kids team as part of our support for workers in the homelessness and family and domestic violence sector.

This course is free for workers from Specialist Homelessness and Domestic Violence Services.
