This year we will be working on more granular searching for members through our website for potential clients. New categories are:
- Private Practice – this category is for anyone who takes on client work directly (the alternative is not currently working or working for an employer only)
- Indigenous Practitioner -we’ve spoken with several of our Aboriginal members who indicated that they would like to be identifiable as indigenous by potential clients and each other. This is an opt in category.
We would also like to facilitate the finding of members who have other areas of specialist expertise. The ones that spring to mind are our Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) members who have a 2nd or more languages that you can work professionally in.
There are other specialty areas that we can identify if you want us to.

Professional Development Activities in 2021

- Family Dispute Resolution Tutorial and Discussion on Wednesdays – this will provide more support and focus for our FDR students and also be an opportunity for our members to stay up to date with the latest information about Family Disptue Resolution Related topics.
- We will continue the monthly group supervision for our Family Group Conference Facilitators.
Other regular groups may arise out of the project to refine the membership directory categories on the website.
