Investing in prevention and early intervention
This week In the Read looks at proposals to shift investment from the pointy end of child protection. Fams, a NSW peak body that supports the service delivery by non-government, not-for-profit organisations working with vulnerable children, young people, families and communities, released a concept paper, Investing in children and their families: The right support in the right place at the right time, in June 2018. Fams argues that significant additional investment is needed to fund true preventative action in order to support at risk children and families, slow the rate of entry to out of home care, and save the NSW Government money in the long-term. Fams recommends a coordinated approach to prevention and early intervention in which the NSW government and sector work together to better adopt, fund, measure, evaluate and iterate a service delivery model that satisfies best practice service delivery approaches. They argue it is unacceptable for government to fail to invest in prevention while increasing expenditure on out of home care, “a problem that is larger than it ought to be due to a failure to invest in prevention responses.”
A 2012 research brief by Casey Family Programs, ‘Shifting resources in child welfare to achieve better outcomes for children and families’ argues for reducing investments in program areas and services that are less effective in helping children and their families (i.e. de-scaling). As this does not diminish the challenges associated with implementing and sustaining evidence-based practices (e.g. building program infrastructure, maximising utility for specific populations and training costs, and maintaining program fidelity) and the reality that some interventions might be effective with certain populations and not others, the research brief describes how reinvestment is being used in other fields and applied in child welfare. It identifies program areas that could be scaled back to free up funds for more effective strategies to improve outcomes for children and families. You can read the Research Brief or the executive summary.

Tuning In to Acting Out: responding to the behaviours and needs of young people
Brisbane - Thursday, 23rd August
Presented by Encompass Family and Community
We all acknowledge the principle that children and young people who need care are best placed with kin, if there are family members who can provide safety and help meet their emotional needs. However there are some challenges to be overcome! Achieving positive family contact with parents can be tricky, and research tells us that reunification planning can be more difficult than with non-relative carers. Family of origin patterns of interaction, and longstanding issues around relationships and the meanings attributed to past events, can be complicated. Cultural and customary kinship roles add a further dimension. This workshop puts the spotlight on the particular issues which workers must address for kinship care to work well, and considers strategies to assist all parties to focus on the child’s needs irrespective of ‘family’ issues. Find out more and register.
National Child Protection Week Q&A Forum
Brisbane - Tuesday, 4th September
Presented by NAPCAN
Child abuse can be prevented if we all play our part. Why then is there still so little talk about the things we can do to create communities that support families and children (before problems arise)? Why is the topic of primary prevention still largely missing from conversations about child abuse and neglect? And, when prevention is mentioned, why is it still so often confused with early intervention? This National Child Protection Week (2nd to 8th September) NAPCAN invites you to join the conversation about prevention in a lively and inspiring Q&A Forum about why primary prevention needs to be front and centre when we talk about child abuse and neglect. Katrina Blowers from Channel 7 will MC, with speakers including Norman Laing, Indigenous Lawyer and Advocate, Megan Mitchell, National Children's Commissioner, representatives from R4Respect, and Michael Hogan, Director-General, Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women. Register now.

Solution Focused Families
Brisbane - Friday, 7th September
Presented by Compass Seminars
Using goal-orientated Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), can assist you to identify a client's hoped for changes and participate in conversations that build those changes in great detail, often leading to solutions they may never have considered trying. Whilst this sounds simple, it is challenging, and made more complex when there is more than one person in the conversation such as with families. Here, you must be skilled at identifying desired outcomes that ALL involved parties can engage in. If you fail to co-construct a conversation that identifies detailed future outcomes you risk family members disengaging, sabotaging or dividing - often keeping them focused on the problem and blocking potential change. This workshop explores the effective core techniques required to work families when change is the name of the game! Find out more and register.
