Following on from a successful Family Harm symposium in September 2018, the Canterbury Family Violence Collaboration, ISR, and Oranga Tamariki are pleased to invite you FREE OF CHARGE to a second full-day of training and networking.

Attendees will hear from Rachel Smith (Advisor to the Joint Venture Project for National Family and Sexual Harm Intervention), as well as Shayne Walker (international Social Work lecturer and current panel member for the Family Violence Death Review Committee) as they explore the relationship between compassion and transformation in family harm responses, and challenge us to review our approaches to this mahi.

In addition, participants will also hear about some of the latest innovations in our own regional response to Family Harm interventions and have an opportunity to meet and network with others working in the family harm field and related services.


Guest speakers include Rachel Smith and Shayne Walker
