Talking with Kids about Tricky Topics

Talking to kids about tricky topics is part of what workers and carers need to do. We need to explore ways of being truthful with kids at a level they can understand and in non-judgmental language. We also need to be mindful of teaching kids who they might talk with about these tricky topics, that they are not alone – there are other kids that go through this, and that whatever happened, it is not their fault. Often this is not a part of worker or carer training and we can find it... [More]

In these critical years, young people face fear and uncertainty as they transition to adulthood, independence and ultimately leaving care. They are confronted with a changing identity... [More]

Transition from Care-Planning to Leave Care

With our attention focused on the rapidly increasing numbers of children and young people entering care in NSW over the last decade, it is easy to neglect the crucial issue of young people leaving care. It is universally acknowledged by child welfare professionals, that ‘leaving care’ is a vulnerable and difficult transition period for young people. At the same time, supports and services are often ‘thin on the ground’. What are the specific risks, issues and experiences for young... [More]
