Auckland News – June 2018

Kia ora all

Just to keep you in the loop, we are in the process of recruiting for the Auckland Regional Coordinator position for the region.  We are aiming for a mid June start date.  I’ll update you more next month.  Many, many thanks to the wonderful key contacts who have stepped up and been supporting caregivers while we have had a vacancy in this role.

Did you know that we have a brand new workshop module we are facilitating around the region?  The Importance of Play.  This is particularly relevant to the children we have in care sho have missed the learning attributes play develops.

Our other core workshops have also been rewritten with a new focus towards therapeutic care and what that means in how we parent the children in our care differently to build better relationships, resilience and life outcomes.  I would like to encourage you all to consider registering and attending these over the next year.  Please feel free to make it more fun by bringing along someone who works closely or supports your family and give them the added benefit of understanding how trauma affects our children in care.

Look out for the new/rewritten workshops over the next couple of terms:

  • The Importance of Play
  • Child Development (updated)
  • Understanding and Supporting Behaviour (rewritten)
  • Building a Secure Attachment (rewritten)

In the interim, if you need support, have questions or would like to talk with someone, please feel free to ring us here at 0800 693 323.

Hei konā rā (goodbye for now)
