A group of workers having a meeting

Our experienced staff are available for:

  • discrete one-off ‘case based’ discussions (secondary consultation) or to work directly with families (primary consultations)
  • facilitation of reflective practice sessions (e.g., clinical supervision and supervision of supervision)
  • professional advice about building ‘working with families’ capacity within your team, program or organisation
  • professional support to help you achieve other realistic and measurable changes in service delivery
  • and more …

We regularly consult with practitioners, managers, and policy makers from a number of different sectors. Visit the Support for Services section of our website to read about our practical experience in training and capacity building, and to learn more about our particular areas of expertise.

The practicalities

Consultants are selected to match the needs of the service requesting support.

Consultations can be time-limited or ongoing and can be delivered to existing routine meetings such as team meetings, to an interest group within your organisation or to an entire team or service.

Although provided in person, isolated rural services have the option of augmenting face-to-face sessions with telephone or videoconferencing sessions.

Note: Fees may be waived for Victorian government funded Mental Health and Acquired Brain Injury service providers. Click here for more.
