The Common Approach training
Rockhampton – 10 May 2017

Every Child CQ partnered with ARACY to provide training in The Common Approach. Underpinned by four key evidence-based practices (holistic, strengths-based, working in partnership and child-centred) the Common Approach helps practitioners to quickly identify strengths to address clients’ needs, think holistically about child and family wellbeing, improve family relationships and referral pathways, increase the level of support and follow up for vulnerable families and practitioners’ awareness of their role in preventing abuse and neglect, and facilitates better wellbeing outcomes for the client.
