About the Role
Two Family Violence Cultural and Therapeutic Group Worker positions have been created to facilitate activity based group programs with Aboriginal parents and groups with children and siblings who are at risk of entering care due to family violence or are currently in out-of-home care due to family violence.
The position will:
- Deliver targeted skills support to parents so they can sustain a safe and healing environment and create safe, positive and healthy relationships for their family
- Deliver positive and age-appropriate group programs for Aboriginal children to engage and to heal their understanding of their parents, family and history
- Facilitate healing camps with families
This position will be central to shaping and designing culturally sound and strong group programs for parents and children.
There is a strong component of action research throughout the program in order to build an evidence base of best practice for working with Aboriginal families. Collaborative working and proactive sharing of the lessons learned is essential to this role.
If you like to be part of an Organization that strives in strengthening the safety and wellbeing and cultural connectedness of Aboriginal children, individuals and families in their community, we want to hear from you.
