Making a Hard Target

Making a Hard Target is designed to complement the group program for children on building resilience and making them a harder target for bullies. The workshop runs across 3 weeks for an hour each week and provides strategies for working with your children to increase their resilience. It also looks at how to communicate with schools or organisations to try and resolve issues around bullying. The program includes a workbook for yourself as well as activities to do with your children.  Whilst the program complements the group program for children it can also be offered independently of this.

There are no dates established for Making a Hard Target training programs at this time. Please register your interest via e-mail or contact us via phone.


Online Counselling Strategy**

This one day workshop focuses on the background research and evidence for different types of e mental health therapies. The main focus will be on the Model of online interventions developed by Kellie and currently used at the University of Newcastle, as a way of demonstrating the considerations in the set-up, engagement and evaluation of the 3 tiered model.

Online Counselling Techniques**

This is a one day workshop which provides an overview of the different types of synchronous and asynchronous online counselling methods. Methods discussed include e-mail, live text chat, video and audio sessions and clinical assisted and self directed online resources.  Background information and evidence for different methodologies will be covered with the aim of being able to provide a rationale to clients for their use.

In 2017 I launched a one and two day workshop for clinician’s wanting to learn more skills in e-health as mentioned above in the two workshops. I was fortunate to offer some locally as well as interstate and can report that all workshops were well received. Whilst a majority of participants were university employees I have also been able to customise training for specialist health services with similar great results.

If your organisation is interested in the program then it can be individually tailored and delivered at your venue. Please contact us with your requirements. At this stage there are no planned workshops for 2019 but keep checking back or e-mail me if you are interested in attending one.


** The above two workshops are offered over two consecutive days and are designed at a beginners level with no previous experience in online methodologies required.  More advanced training and ongoing professional development and supervision in these practices are available upon request.
