on 18th August 2016

The South Australian Child Protection Systems Royal Commission Report, The life they deserve, was released in early August 2016. The report is presented in two volumes. The first volume sets out what the Royal Commission did to examine the adequacy of current laws and policies to protect children and young people, system deficits and 260 recommendations addressing a wide range of structural, system and practice aspects across the SA government and service system. The second volume contains 5 case studies that examine the operation of the system and practice quality in specific areas. Four focus on the individual circumstances of young children, intervening in high risk families, leaving care, and children with complex needs in out of home care.

Culturally Sensitive Practice

Brisbane - 15th July

The AASW/PeakCare Child Protection Practitioner’s group was established as a joint initiative.  Membership consists of social workers and human/social services practitioners who are employed in government, non-government and private services who work with children and families and who have involvement with the continuum of family support, child safety and protection issues. 

The purpose of the practice group is to provide a forum for discussing child protection policy and practice from a social work/human services perspective.
AASW and PeakCare are delighted to announce that the next topic for discussion is Culturally Sensitive Practice – across cultures in child protection – what does that mean? presented by Jatinder Kaur.  Jatinder is the director of JK Diversity Consultants, which specialises in working with migrant and refugee communities.

Jatinder is Social worker and has over 13 years of experience in working frontline child protection, policy, research and clinical counselling. She is member of AASW and on the Qld BMC. Over the past 12 months she has been employed as Clinical Counsellor with Royal Flying Doctor Service and serviced the remote Aboriginal community of 'Kowanyama' in the Cape York in Queensland.

She is passionate about promoting culturally sensitive practice and has published number of research papers and developed practice guides for the child welfare sector.
