Webinar: Sharing information and engaging with parents about child mental health

January 25, 2019 at 9:25 AM

From Child Family Community Australia

Practitioners working with parents regularly share information with them about child health and development. Sharing information with parents about child mental health is important because the issue is widely misunderstood. 

This webinar will explore how practitioners can share information about children’s mental health (0-12 years) and effectively engage parents to support prevention and early intervention for child mental health difficulties. 

Drawing upon practice wisdom, research findings and lived experience, Angela, Myfanwy and Mandy will explore how practitioners can tailor information about child mental health to: 

  • meet families’ unique needs
  • reflect the circumstances that impact on family relationships, social relationships and relational capabilities. 

We will also examine some of the factors that might get in the way of engaging parents during this process and how these barriers can be approached. 

Participants will be encouraged to reflect on their own practice. Further resources on child mental health will also be provided.
