The National Centre for Action on Child Sexual Abuse: Who we are and how we’re responding to professional development needs

Thursday, 27 July 2023 | 11:30am-12:30pm (AEST)

The Australian Child Maltreatment Study (2023) found that across Australia, one in three girls and one in five boys have experienced some form of child sexual abuse before the age of 15.

Dr Leanne Beagley and Dr Rosa Flaherty from the National Centre for Action on Child Sexual Abuse will present on the important work of the National Centre to raise awareness and understanding of child sexual abuse, support help-seeking and guide best practice.

A key platform of the National Centre’s work is to build the capability of workforces to protect children from harm and respond to victims and survivors of child sexual abuse. Leanne and Rosa will talk about the findings of a survey the National Centre recently conducted to understand the learning and development needs of a broad range of workers who have responsibility for protecting and supporting children, young people and adults who have experienced child sexual abuse.

In this webinar you will learn more about how the National Centre can support you in this important area of work.


Findings of the landmark Australian Child-Maltreatment Study

Thursday, 15 June 2023 | 11:30am-12:30pm (AEST)

The Australian Child Maltreatment Study is the first Australian survey to identify the national prevalence of all five forms of child maltreatment – physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, and exposure to domestic violence – and their associated mental health disorders, health risk behaviours, physical health conditions, and burden of disease. The ACMS surveyed 8500 Australians, including 3500 young Australians aged 16-24, to identify historical and contemporary trends in these maltreatment experiences and associated outcomes. This presentation by lead investigator, Professor Ben Mathews discussed key findings from the ACMS, including results about: (1) the prevalence and nature of children’s exposure to domestic violence; (2) its associated outcomes; and (3) the overlap between children’s exposure to domestic violence and their experience of other types of child maltreatment.

Familial Abuse and Psychosocial Risk Factors in Older First Nations Peoples and People from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Backgrounds | Thursday 29 September 2022 | 12:30PM-1:00PM AEST | Presenter: Anna Gillbard, UnitingCare

This presentation shared data collected by an elder abuse helpline in Queensland was analysed to compare the types of abuse and risk factors of alleged victims from ATSI, CALD and Other (non-ATSI or CALD cases) backgrounds. Differences in patterns of abuse and reporting were found. Rates of trauma, level of English, income and wealth were found to differ as a function of ethnicity group. Between-group differences were also observed for alleged perpetrators with regards to age, income, wealth, substance abuse and trigger factors for the abuse.

Developing a better understanding of risk factors for ATSI and CALD victims and the alleged perpetrators can help to provide information to provide more targeted responses for both awareness raising activities and intervention strategies.

Effective use of Telehealth Delivery in Supporting Children After Separation: Challenges and Solutions | Wednesday 21 September 2022 | 12:30PM-1:00PM AEST | Presenters: Melanie Weinstock & Josette Gardiner, Better Place Australia

The Supporting Children After Separation Program (SCASP), delivered by Better Place Australia, provides counselling to children and young people, 5 to 18 years old from separated families.

This presentation will explore the challenges SCASP practitioners have experienced in the transition to online counselling during COVID-19. Challenges have included assessing safety for telehealth sessions where high conflict is present as well as remotely navigating the dynamics of separated and blended families. It is important to then explore some solutions the program has discovered.

Socially connecting during a socially distancing pandemic | Wednesday 7 September 2022 | 12:30PM-1:00PM AEST | Presenter: Lucy Louca, PRONIA

During Melbourne’s extended COVID-19 lockdown and restrictions through their Family Relationship Program, PRONIA attended to an unparalleled number of calls for help, including from many who had never used the services before.

The presentation will draw on experiences gained in transitioning face-to-face services and programs to telephone service, and the challenges faced and benefits gained. Additional challenges faced within the counselling context will also be presented; these include unfamiliarity with the counselling process and historic trauma, not previously disclosed.
