Child Inclusive Practice (CIP) is an empirical and evidence-based process that seeks to assist parents in refocusing on and planning for the needs of their child/ren post-separation. Learn the skills and knowledge needed to become a Child Inclusive Practitioner within the Family Dispute/Family Counselling process.

LifeWorks, together with Cathy Holmes (B.B.Sc, Grad Dip. Ch. & Adol. Psych.), present an interactive and practical training course aimed at preparing practitioners for ‘the Art of Child Inclusive Practice’. The 3-day training course will include theoretical foundations to CIP, practice components of CIP, and role playing in a practice setting.

This three-day course covers all aspects of Child Inclusive Practise within Family Dispute Resolution and Family Counselling, including:

  • Engaging with parents to gather developmental information
  • Engaging with children in a supportive, developmentally appropriate manner about their experiences of the family separation
  • Formulating the child’s core experience within a developmental framework
  • Communicating  needs, rights and interests of children in feedback conversations
  • Ensuring the safety and comfort of children in their participation in the process
  • Working with the Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner/Counsellor to ensure that agreements or decisions reached reflect the psycho-developmental needs of each child.
