8.2. Funding for at least 3-5 years

8.3. FVV will fund the evaluation

8.5. We don't know how many positions we need

8.6. No case management - comes from partnerships

8.7. Focus on Therapeutic healing for women and children (wholistic family approach)

8.8. Work with men is not necessarily included but we can work with them from a whole family approach

9.1. Mackillop is new in the FV field and is still quite unknown for this in the South

9.2. Need for networking? who and how?

9.3. previous experience in GPS meeting?

10. Region

10.1. is our current region too large?

10.2. new tender regions, are they too small for the request of targets? how will we go about accomplishing these?

10.3. There is a practical reason to do groupwork - meet targets

11. Assessments - are these appropriate? review and ideas?

11.1. stopped doing family star - these transitioned into SEY 'feedback' forms

11.2. VACCA doesn't use NCFAS. they use CRAF and Annie is unsure what the other assessments they use are

11.3. family star plus comes with different domains.

11.3.1. some don't really like the ratedness and directness of it

11.3.2. others appreciate the transparency and appreciate the ratedness for being able to work with incongruencies in self-rating and behaviours

11.4. we don't want to over assess

11.5. tender is asking for evidence of outcomes, therefore assessment is important

11.6. Other programs use: CRAF, outcome stars,

11.7. NCFAS? Timeline and it's relevance? It is case work aligned.

11.7.1. we don't actually pay attention to / address all of the point of the NCFAS but only some.

11.8. Are there more appropriate assessment tools?

11.9. The way were doing CRAF is not sufficient for orangedoor! - how to review our practice. will this change with new MARAM training?

11.10. safe and together model?

11.11. is the MARAM (craf in the mean time) and the feedback forms enough assessment?

11.11.1. YES - but review of feedback form to make more full/robust

11.11.1.1. add questions: finances am i well serviced?

11.11.1.2. could we organise the feedback form to be more dynamic/narrative?

12. Program Partners

12.1. Laura (QEC): this set up has been useful. different families have different entry points and this can present a practice challenge. "i don't think there is a fixed way i should come in" to the work. Really important difference and coupling of work between therapy and parenting support roles.

12.2. Annie (VACCA): this has been a challenging role. Annie has learnt a lot. More cohesion with VACCA would be great. going forward - more sharing between VACCA's FV work and SEY FV work. Referral issues from VACCA where many clients are in crisis. This prevents true therapeutic work from taking place and also increases risk for worker. VACCA doesn't use NCFAS. they use CRAF and Annie is unsure what the other assessments they use are

12.3. Will there be more collaborative Conferences?

13. Professional development needs for our staff

13.1. Education and training is not included in the tender funding. Although Mackillop has an internal budget for training.

13.2. MARAM

13.3. do we have one whole family therapist, or do we share this work?

13.4. Do we need a child therapist? one? or are we all trained?

13.5. Psychotherapy approaches

13.6. circle of security

13.7. Working therapeutically with men who use violence

13.7.1. speak to people in north QLD who do this well

13.8. DBT - usually used with people with complex trauma/borderline personality disorders. Mindfulness

13.9. Neurobiology of childs first 1000 days, attachment styles effect of trauma and FV

13.10. clarify basic shared alignment of body of therapeutic practice theory & methodology - approach to working with clients. we all bring our own approach and this could be supplemented by a clearer basic shared approach?

13.11. Play therapy, child therapy, Art therapy

13.12. EMDR

13.12.1. Either one person or the entire team will be trained in this. It's very popular for trauma - costings $1500 for accredited 2 day workshop.

13.12.1.1. Trial one EMDR trained person, 6 months, train others based on the results

13.12.1.1.1. This adds to the Tender planning

13.13. Staff training each other in their specialties!

14. Group supervision

14.1. is the supervision with Campbell Paul useful for our FV work?

14.2. reflective practice with Linda is useful

14.3. regular reflective practice - monthly is enough.

14.4. Roster for presenting in reflective practice (with flexibility - swapping etc)

15. Safety

15.1. Policy and process - Screening of clients and how thorough we need to be

15.2. make sure referrals are very clear/whole picture - IVO's + Risk

15.3. two safety assessments - if theyre still together + if theyve separated

15.4. Develop a Pre-screening tool

15.5. ensure we information share before heading out ofn visits

15.6. Ensure established relationships with Police, orangedoor, Justice, part of the MDC

15.7. a Shared role to sit at orangedoor and review referrals

16. Time frame/length of service?

16.1. Tender states 40-100hrs - very vague

16.2. therapy isn't quick

16.3. how do we determine length of service?

17. Referrals

17.1. we talk a lot about the families and then find out that it's not appropriate to work with them. - not time effective

17.2. Mark doesn't have much input over the clients Annie (VACCA) gets

17.3. Referral meetings. Should we change how we do it?

17.3.1. is it important for everyone to know all about the family/client?

17.4. We need to ensure clients aren't in crisis before we engage - intake assessments

17.5. Crisis checklist re intake referrals - a balance between amount of crisis and involvement in other support services. If they have enough other services (safe steps/ integrated family services) then we could still engage.

17.5.1. This would open up partnerships with other (casemanaging & crisis managing) organisations down the peninsula - Goodshepphard, Wayys, Family life, Ozchild, launch housing, Salvo care, Anglicare, star health, connections,

17.6. Annie thinks that her clients need to go through case management first, and then referred through to therapy
