  • Issue 34 - What about children's mental health?: Evaluation findings from
           the family life shine children's mental health pilot project
    • Abstract: McCoy, Alicia; Morehouse, Kay
      It is well recognised that mental illness is a significant and enduring issue in Australia today. In order to address the growing concern, in July 2006 the Council of Australian Governments endorsed a National Action Plan on Mental Health which aimed: to reduce the incidence of mental illness in Australia with a particular focus on early intervention; to enhance the active citizenship of Australians with mental health issues; and to improve services for people with a mental illness, their families, and carers (Council of Australian Governments, 2006). As part of the plan, a series of Mental Health Community Based Services initiatives were funded by the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA). This article will discuss one of those initiatives - the Family Life SHINE children's mental health pilot project - which offered an early intervention and public health service strategy within a family support agency in the southern region of Melbourne. The findings of the two-year bi-phase evaluation will be presented, along with a selection of recommendations and key evaluation challenges that arose during the pilot period.

  • Issue 34 - The Newpin inside fathers' program in Australia
    • Abstract:
      This paper explores the use of fathering programs in an Australian Correctional Centre. Most programs delivered in New South Wales (NSW) Correctional Centres target offending behaviours. Intensive fathering programs have a different focus. Instead of directly targeting offending behaviours to support change, intensive fathering programs elevate the inmate's role and responsibility as the father to his children to mediate change. While this paper does not follow the reduction in recidivism, it does explore what the men reported as the impact of the program. All participants were able to identify changes in their insight and also their behaviour in the group, in the Correctional Centre and with their children (when contact was permitted). The paper identifies key change factors for the Newpin Inside Program and how Mutual Aid Programs can be delivered in a challenging environment.

  • Issue 34 - Promising practice in intensive family support for Aboriginal
           and Torres Strait Islander families
    • Abstract: Matthews, Garry; Burton, John
      Intensive support to address complex needs, family breakdown and multiple stressors for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families is critical to improving the wellbeing, development and future life experience of children. Increasing rates of substantiated child abuse and neglect indicate a worsening reality (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare [AIHW], 2012). Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are already 10 times more likely to be in out-of-home care than non-Indigenous children (AIHW, 2012). High renotification and re-substantiation rates indicate complex and chronic family needs at the intersection of child protection concerns including: "domestic and family violence; parental mental health problems; family homelessness and precarious housing; and parental drug and alcohol problems." (Tilbury, 2012, p.2)

  • Issue 34 - Parents' perspectives of how the parent-family worker
           relationship enhances parenting capacity to support children's wellbeing
           in families where child neglect is an issue
    • Abstract: Reimer, Elizabeth
      There is widespread agreement that the working relationship is a necessary condition to parents effectively engaging in child welfare interventions (de Boer and Coady, 2007; Kazdin and Whitley, 2006). Successful engagement has been found to have positive implications for families. Regarding child welfare work, numerous studies have found the working relationship to support improved parent relationships with their children, along with improved parent self esteem, confidence, coping, advocacy, parenting skills, physical circumstances, and social support (de Boer and Coady, 2007; Howe, 2010 ; Kirkpatrick, Barlow, Stewart-Brown, and Davis, 2007; Ribner and Knei-Paz, 2002).

  • Issue 34 - Practitioner's Response: What intensity of service is needed to
           prevent children's entry to care?: Addressing the pressures on early
           intervention and prevention services
    • Abstract: Tregeagle, Susan; Voigt, Louise; Milosevic, Biljana
      This paper provides a useful overview of the difficulties of a service delivery model which currently does not acknowledge a trauma framework in working with families. In NSW there have been attempts to simplify the complexity of current child welfare practice, the assumption being that families at risk only require a short-term intervention to address at times entrenched and chaotic environments with practical support and some parenting information. The authors, Tregeagle and Voigt, seem to have assumed a knowledge base from the reader regarding the current NSW child welfare system and new funding model as the reasons why a better targeted early intervention approach should work. The paper does not seem to provide sufficient context which might explain why early intervention and prevention services have been increasingly asked to work with families where significant abuse exists, other than referring to the data about demand. Instead, it begins at a position which states that it will, and then attempts to discuss reasonable expectations of what can be achieved. Overall, the paper does highlight some significant issues of concern from a practice perspective.

  • Issue 34 - What intensity of service is needed to prevent children's entry
           to care?: Addressing the pressures on early intervention and prevention
           services
    • Abstract: Tregeagle, Susan; Voigt, Louise
      Children who are likely to experience significant abuse and neglect and are, consequently, in danger of entering care, are known to come from complex family situations with deeply entrenched social disadvantage (Fernandez, 2004). Their numbers are rising, as can be seen in statistics on substantiated abuse and neglect, entries to care and the rise in length of time that children stay in care (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, 2011). Early intervention and prevention services are increasingly asked to work with these children's parents. However, peak bodies report that they have inadequate resources to address the numbers of families, the depth of disadvantage and the weight of problems confronting families (CAFWAA, 2007). This paper asks what level of help families need when they are at risk of losing their children and what can reasonably be expected from services funded as early intervention or prevention.

  • Issue 34 - Family suport in India: The good, the bad, and the ugly
    • Abstract: Drielsma, Paul
      I have been to India seven times over the past 30 years, both as a traveller and volunteer. Reflecting on the subject of 'family support' in India, I can only offer my impressions without claiming any thorough knowledge, and certainly not a researched understanding that would stand up to academic scrutiny.

  • Issue 34 - NAHA: Where to now?
    • Abstract: Pisarski, Adrian
      Affordable, secure, safe, accessible and well located housing underpins every human activity. It is critical for child and family wellbeing, education, employment, health and happiness. Too many households now live in marginalised rentals or stigmatised estates and dwellings. For many, their struggle is compounded by a poor rental history and they may even be blacklisted by the private real estate industry.

  • Issue 34 - Policy and program implementation and local ownership or "our
           place and our responsibilities"
    • Abstract: Sheargold, Mike
      FamS' recent experience with a number of placed-based projects and statewide program reforms has reinforced our belief that the key driver of effective policy and program implementation is genuine local ownership, demonstrated through shared responsibility and accountability. In relation to the theme of this issue of developing practice, 'What do (vulnerable) families really need?', FamS' position is that local ownership of program delivery is critical to our capacity to supply vulnerable families and children with an effective service system. That is, a service system that can translate state and national evidenced based policy and programs into effective local practice and utilise the available resources to fashion the most relevant local response to the needs of these children and families.

  • Issue 34 - Child safety as fundamenta l to wellbeing: Taking stock ,
           envisioning change
    • Abstract: Babington, Brian
      A search of recent research literature reveals a wide variety of models and frameworks on the meaning and dimensions of childhood wellbeing. Despite the great diversity in definitions, all appear to have at least one common baseline factor: children need to grow up free from harm in all its forms (Ereaut and Whiting, 2008; OECD, 2009; Statham and Chase, 2010; UNICEF. Innocenti Research Centre, 2007). Without freedom from abuse, children's development is seriously compromised; they fail to thrive. For evidence, we need look no further than the physical and psychological scars inflicted on a cohort of up to 500,000 Australians who, as children, experienced abuse in orphanages and other institutions in the 20th century - the 'Forgotten Australians' (Alliance for Forgotten Australians, 2011; Australian Senate Community Affairs Reference Committee, 2001, 2005).
