Parents, Families and Carers Inaugural National Conference
14 January 2008 at 12:03 pm

Registrations are invited for the inaugural National Conference of the National Federation of Parents, Families and Carers.

The event will run over two days in Sydney in March 2008 and will explore the place of families in the human services and social policy, and develop a national agenda for change.

The conference will bring together parents, families and carers and their advocacy, self-help and support groups, with service providers, governments and researchers who support an agenda of empowerment and person and family-centred practice.

It will explore innovative developments in Australia and overseas, and develop an agenda for policy change, system re-design, innovation and empowerment in fields including early childhood development; child care; education; disability; mental illness; learning, developmental and behavioural challenges; chronic and acute illness; aged care; parental learning and empowerment; and family support.

Presentations, papers and workshops will cover the following themes:
– conceptual and foundational perspectives on the place of parents, families and carers in the human services and social policy;
– evaluation of current policies and paradigms, service delivery models and practices, and social outcomes;
– analyses of system failure;
– current innovations in Australia and overseas;
– proposals for system re-design, new service delivery and support models, and new funding models;
– issues and challenges in parenting and family support;
– proposals for strengthening familial relationships and familial social capital in the human services;
– analysis of impediments to change and empowerment of parents, families and carers, and strategies for overcoming these;
– political processes and strategies for change;
– comparative critique of indigenous and non-indigenous approaches in the human services and social policy.

National Conference
University of Sydney NSW
