Join OPEN and facilitators from Uniting Vic.Tas, for an insightful OPEN Forum on the development of Uniting’s Therapeutic Model of Care for Working with Children, Young People, and Families (TMoC).

This model represents Uniting’s commitment to fostering a workplace culture and practices that are evidence-informed and recognise the profound impact of complex trauma on clients, families, the workforce, and organisations. Tymur Hussein and Claire Stanley will highlight the evidence-informed practice and trauma-informed principles that guide decision-making and are designed to be integrated into Uniting’s organisational culture.

The model was based on key principles and sources of evidence, including:

  • Research evidence
  • Practitioner knowledge and skill
  • Child and family knowledge, preferences, and values
  • Participatory approaches that were collaborative, iterative and promoted safety

This OPEN Forum is relevant to practitioners, program managers and those in leadership seeking to understand the therapeutic model, and its development and implementation across an organisation. 

This is OPEN’s third event in the Trauma-informed Insight Series. Watch the recordings of the previous events below.
