Our Workshops

The Focus of Our Efforts

Engaging Adolescents

The Engaging Adolescents Parenting Program is designed to support parents with strategies to set reasonable boundaries and resolve unacceptable behaviours as teens become more independent and transition into adulthood.

Protective Behaviours

The Protective Behaviours program is a proactive approach to provide children, teens and vulnerable people with the skills and strategies to recognise when they are feeling unsafe and where to go to for help. Delivered in a safe format, this program is designed to leave parents feeling positive about equipping their children with positive life skills, such as assertiveness, emotional literacy and problem solving. These skills assist children to better cope with anxiety and know when to take risks, where to go for help and how to speak up against peer pressure, bullying and abuse.

Safe Play

It can be difficult for parents and caregivers to know how to respond to sexual behaviour in children. This information session will provide an overview of what is considered normal and age appropriate, which behaviours need to be monitored more closely and which behaviours are a cause for concern. Utilising strategies from the Protective Behaviours framework we will also discuss appropriate responses to each.

Sensory Kids Warnbro

While we all have our sensory preferences, some children can experience difficulty in organising and responding to sensory input, which can lead to learning difficulties, developmental delay, anxiety and stress. This session is designed to inform parents as to how they can best support their children to organise sensory input, how it can affect children who have difficulties with organising sensory input, basic strategies and coping mechanisms for parents, when to seek further support and correct referral pathways for support and therapy if required.

It provides parents with the knowledge and practical skills to set limits confidently and calmly when required and the ability to follow through with reasonable consequences.
