SESSION 1 (1.5hrs)

“Re-Inventing the Village:- Working Together for Better Outcomes for Children”
Professor Frank Oberklaid
Abstract – Despite increased attention and expenditure on the early years, children and families continue to struggle; difficulties in childhood impact on life course and constitute a major risk of poor outcomes in a range of health and psychosocial domains in adult life. Our understanding of the importance of the early years challenges us at a professional and service level. However it also presents us with opportunities to make a real difference in the lives of children and their families. This workshop will focus on how the existing service system can be refocused in pursuit of prevention and early intervention, with an emphasis on improving outcomes across a range of domains. I will outline some of the approaches, frameworks and approaches that have been developed by the Centre for Community Child Health and which have been informed by the research of our extensive work with communities.

SESSION 2 (1.5hrs)

“The Road to Complex Trauma”
Sharon Muller
Abstract – Complex Trauma describes the lifetime effects of chronic child abuse and neglect within the primary care giving relationship. This framework brings together a number of familiar theories such as PTSD, attachment, neurobiology and child development to better understand the often travelled road from childhood abuse to neglect to adulthood struggles with relationships, addictions, violence and/or parenting. Today’s presentation looks at this journey in some detail, informed at all points by the key assumption that many problematic behaviours identified along this trajectory are actually misdirected attempts to get basic childhood needs met.
