Connecting Families is a private care and protection consultancy operating since July 2004. All of the practitioners are qualified Social Workers or therapists with extensive experience in working with complex family issues. Connecting Families’ Social Workers and therapists work from a child-focused, family centred, strengths-based and safety-organised approach. As such, this work features several core elements:
Connecting Families’ practice draws from the solution-focused family therapy approaches of Signs of Safety, Partnering for Safety, Resolutions and Narrative Therapy and is grounded in the knowledge base of complex trauma and children’s developmental needs.
Connecting Families practitioners are committed to ongoing professional development and reflective practices. They receive monthly team supervision from Sonja Parker, from Partnering for Safety in WA and Colby Pearce from Secure Start in Adelaide
Connecting Families are dedicated to the work and staying current with evidence based modalities and therapies.
