Child Inclusive Practice Forum 2021

The 2021 Child Inclusive Practice (CIP) Forum Expanding the lens: Child inclusion and vulnerable children gives us the chance to think how children’s lives intersect with decision making situations, when families can be quite lost and to hear children’s decisions when their voice can be lost. Voice of the child – hearing the child’s view, represent the developmental view/impact of the children.

The Child Inclusive Practice (CIP) Forum is a biennial event that brings together mediators, social workers, psychologists and counsellors that work to keep the best interests of children at the forefront of Family Dispute Resolution (mediation). The purpose of the Forum is to enrich the practice of these specialists through learning and networking. The event is organised by FRSA with assistance of the CIP network.

The CIP Forum will be held 3-5 May 2021 at Pullman Melbourne on the Park, Melbourne, Victoria.

Call for Abstracts

Child Inclusive Practice is the foundation for working with families to ensure that children’s views and opinions are actively heard and considered in decision making and therapeutic forums.

This year’s Child Inclusive Practice Forum theme is Expanding the Lens: Child Inclusion and Vulnerable Children”. From the now advanced work of child inclusion in separation and post separation scenarios, this Forum will also feature emerging work with children living in other challenging family contexts. This includes children living with parents who have a mental illness, substance addiction, chronic illness, trans-gender issues, or experiencing other acute stressors and contexts of living that render responsive, attuned caregiving more difficult. The Forum calls for practice and research papers on representing the views and needs of diverse groups of children, in order to ensure children are heard, and to improve the capacity of parents, families and service systems to better support children’s developmental well-being.

The COVID-19 Pandemic brought with it additional challenges for vulnerable children.  This CIP forum provides a great opportunity to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on children through a CIP lens and the learnings from these experiences that will impact practice from hereon in.

It is intended that the Forum program will deliver an abundance of ideas, evidence and practical skills that practitioners, researchers and policy makers may add to their existing ‘toolkit’.

The Forum committee invites abstracts for paper presentations from all professional domains that promote child consultation and centrally incorporate the experience of the child in their practice with parents, families and service systems.  A limited number of concurrent paper presentations will be offered for a 30 or 60 minute verbal presentation (including question time).  Please consider the theme and select one of the following streams for your abstract.

Practice Developments:

  • Children of parents who are separating/have separate
  • Children of parents with a mental illness and/or substance use problem
  • Cross cultural applications
  • The voice of the child refugee
  • Learnings from working with children and families made more vulnerable due to the COVID-19 lockdown

Management Issues:

  • Creating child inclusive standards, across sectors
  • Training: What is needed to learn new skills
  • Clinical Supervision: What is needed to support new learning and complex cases

Complex clinical scenarios

  • Restoration after foster care
  • Restoration after Domestic violence
  • Gender issues in children or parents
  • Child inclusive practices with young adult children
  • New partners and other relevant voices

Research

  • Updates on new CIP research
  • New developmental evidence

 Your proposal must include the following:

  1. Title
  2. Abstract of no more than 250 words summarising your topic
  3. Methods: what are you basing your talk on (a case, your collective experience, data)? if your paper is data based, you must include details of the sample, measures and results. If it concerns a case, ensure all identifying details are removed.
  4. Intended contribution of your paper (what is the main question or message for your audience)
  5. Your preference for a time allocation: 30 or 60 minutes
  6. Author list, and name of intended presenter/s.
  7. Presenter contact details.
