National Professional Learning Tour on Sanctuary Model
Sanctuary Institute Australia
MacKillop Family Services
are inviting community services organisations and schools across Australia to attend a two-day professional learning seminar that will support staff to create a culture of safety, wellbeing and learning in their schools or organisations.
In Victoria, the 2-day seminar will be held on 16-17 August 2018, at Victoria University (460 Ballarat Road, Sunshine, Victoria), from 9am-4.30pm. Download flyer with Victorian details
Participants will learn about The Sanctuary Model, a trauma-informed, whole-of-organisation change model that responds to the impact that chronic stress and adversity has, not only on those who experience it, but also on the staff who work with them and on organisations as a whole. The professional learning will focus on how to reduce stress, disengagement and disruption, and increase hope.
One of the innovative elements of this professional learning is that it is designed to bring together people from across our communities who work with complex children, young people and families. Over the two days these groups will work together to understand The Sanctuary Model theory, values and frameworks. On Day Two in their professional disciplines, participants will learn how to apply The Sanctuary Model in their context.
This seminar is relevant for schools and community services organisations, teachers, school leaders, chaplains and well-being coordinators; Early childhood organisations; Child, youth, and family community service organisations; Disability organisations; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community organisations; Youth Mental Health services; Youth Justice organisations; and Local councils and State Ddpartments responsible for the well-being of children and families.
Note for Education Professionals:
This program meets the requirements for provisional or full teacher registration for 14 hours of Professional Learning in every Australian state. Teachers will be able to demonstrate increased knowledge and proficiency on Standard 1 and 4 of Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (AITSL)
