By Narelle Williams CatholicCare Sandhurst O n Wednesday 24th of June, CatholicCare Sandhurst hosted Hanif Jaberipour, Senior Training Consultant from The Australian Childhood Foundation to deliver the Bringing Up great Kids Facilitation training. This training prepares participants to deliver the 6 week program to parents. The Bringing Up Great Kids program aims to build strong, positive and respectful relationships between parents/carers and their children. Parents learn about the brain development of their children and understand how to meet their children’s growing needs. Through the program, they are supported to build attentive communication with children. Parents also reflect on and explore the meaning behind their children’s behaviour and develop an awareness of the cues that trigger off unhelpful or ineffective responses. 24 participants, from a number of diverse organisations travelled from Swan Hill, Echuca, Shepparton, Inglewood and Bendigo to attended the training. CCS, through our Fostering Integration Project, funded bilingual workers from Loddon Campaspe Multi Cultural Services and Bendigo Community Health Services Resettlement program, including Karen and Hazara community members, to attend the training. CSS Family and Relationship Services team will provide ongoing support and mentoring to attendees at the training to deliver the BUGKs program to parents in their communities.
