TOUGH CONVERSATIONS IN CHILD PROTECTION | CANBERRA | Professional Development

A solution based on proven techniques

Tough Conversations in child protection is a one-day course for child protection professionals and family workers to help them to hold the often-challenging conversations with parents in child protection. The origin of these child protection workshops arose from a similar series of workshops already being held nationally for school principals. The workshop helps busy professionals to quickly assess and prepare for tough conversations in situations where a clarity-of-message can make all the difference for vulnerable families.

What’s included:

Training in how to conduct difficult conversations using a script to achieve accountability
Lunch and refreshments
A terrific opportunity to spend time with other child protection workers


The course teaches a method to:

• Identify and clearly articulate the strengths and deficits in parents' caring capacity so that parents have a clear future work plan.
• Comprehensively gather information for holding a factual tough conversation so that as many facts (as can be reasonably gathered) can be brought to bear in conversations with parents.
• Defuse antagonism during a tough conversation while holding a firm line.
• Identify the important 'dashboard' markers for parents so that everyone has clarity about what is expected within a given timespan.
Please note that this is not a train-the-trainer course and it is not designed for the subsequent on-training of other workers back at your workplace. Participants will sign a training agreement to this effect on the day of training.
Cost: $369 early bird or $469 full price
