How to break down barriers

Free webinar invitation


How to break down barriers to collaboration and create meaningful partnerships

Presenters: Lottie Turner, Marika Manioudakis
Facilitator: Jess Smart

Wednesday, 10 March 2021 1:00–2:00 pm AEDT. Find your time zone.

Professionals working with children and families are often compelled to work together when they have mutual clients. Past CFCA webinars have explored the common structural, philosophical and communication barriers that can arise during these partnerships.

Building on these lessons, this webinar will discuss various ways in which services are collaborating across the health justice landscape in Australia and break down the barriers to establishing successful partnerships. Specifically, it will:
• Summarise the evidence on how to engage in effective partnerships
• Provide a case example of effective health justice partnership in practice
• Feature an extended Q&A session, including live questions and questions taken at registration.
This event will be of interest to professionals working in legal services, family violence and other health and social services.

We encourage you to test your system before the webinar, and read our Frequently Asked Questions.
