Registrations for this event are now closed.

The Online Lounge Room @  8pm

The Online Lounge Room is a space for you to connect and share with other carers from the comfort of your own home.

All children need opportunities to learn, play and socialise with their peers. Children with a history of trauma may struggle in these situations and exhibit troublesome behaviours. Dr Stacy Blythe will discuss some strategies to assist parents and carers to educate the adults facilitating children’s activities so that the children can participate in a safe space. 

Stacy is a mother, foster carer, and senior lecturer in the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Western Sydney University. Her program of research is concerned with the health and well-being of children in out-of-home care, and their families. Stacy’s teaching focus is in infant mental health. She holds a PhD in relation to foster care and has post graduate qualifications in developmental trauma.

Date: Tuesday 23 February | Time: 8pm to 8.40pm
