These are the words and sentiments heavily featured in the flood of responses received to the headline article published in last week’s edition of eNews – the word SHOCKED being the most commonly used. Click here to read the comments posted by the Child Safety Department’s Director-General, Mr Michael Hogan, and several other executive and senior officers of his department; executive and senior representatives of some (but not yet enough!) non-government organisations and other peak bodies; and by many other individuals, some named and some anonymously. Their comments are powerfully stated and eloquent.

As you read through the comments, your attention is drawn to a posted message that, I think, is the most poignant of those received. It came from an Aboriginal man who, unlike most others, wrote after reading the mixed bag of conference feedback, “It doesn’t come as any big shock.” To contemplate the significance of that statement is what should lead us all towards even greater levels of shock and despair.

Despite this man’s reaction, he graciously concludes his comment by saying, “But thank you for providing truths and some strong initiatives from mainstream and our mob.”  For this man to be able to display this level of generosity in thanking us after having read many of the offensive comments posing as conference feedback is remarkable. There is an understated dignity and beauty in his words that serve as an incredible contrast to the ugly bigotry that pervades the words contained within some of the conference feedback.

Calls mount for federal government to support Newstart raise

The federal Labor Opposition this week formally endorsed an increase to Newstart alongside an immediate Parliamentary Inquiry to consider the new rate. This means Labor will vote against a Greens bill to increase the payment by $150 a fortnight on the grounds that the review should come first to decide the appropriate rate. PeakCare supports the media release issued by Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) following this announcement, reiterating its call for the federal government to reconsider its position on not raising the payment rate. ACOSS Acting CEO Jacqueline Phillips noted that "it has been 25 years since an increase to Newstart in real terms", and that both the Coalition and the Opposition must agree to a raise of at least $75 per week to make the payment liveable. Read the ACOSS media release, or consider writing to your government MP and voicing your support for the payment raise.

"An exercise in careful diplomacy" - unpacking discussions around substance use and domestic and family violence

Unpacking the relationship between substance use (alcohol and other drugs - AOD) and domestic and family (DFV) violence requires attention to differences not only in language use and research traditions in research, but also practical notions of accountability across different sectors. In this free-access journal article, Dr Sophie Yates, UNSW, contends that substance abuse affects DFV in gendered ways, and that more attention should be paid to this intersection to understand how AOD affects the perpetration and experience of DFV. 

This article will be useful to practitioners seeking to understand the sensitivities and contested notions of accountability surrounding AOD discussions in situations of DFV, and will assist in navigating these sensitivities to deliver better outcomes for those affected by DFV. Access the article.

Working with dissociation to facilitate recovery in clients who have suffered complex trauma
Brisbane - Friday, 9th August

Presented by Australian Association of Social Workers

Social workers work in a wide range of setting and roles from community work to counselling and therapeutic roles. In social work setting social workers come across some of the most marginalised people of our society. Many of these people have experienced trauma in their lives, particularly complex ongoing trauma which has seriously affected their ability to find their way in life and leaves them at time with very distressing symptoms. To have an understanding of dissociation and how it presents and can be supported to be integrated is key to social work whatever the role. Even when we are not in counselling positions having an understanding of this will help in being client centred and inform the responses we make to clients. Find out more and register.

Tuning In to Acting Out: Responding to the behaviours and needs of young people
Brisbane - Thursday, 22nd August
Presented by Encompass Family and Community

This advanced workshop assumes that participants have a working knowledge of the impacts of disrupted attachment, trauma and loss upon young people in care or disengaged from family. We know that these issues underpin the often challenging behaviour of these young people. But how best to respond? This workshop takes a very practical approach to applying this theoretical knowledge in everyday work with troubled young people.
