Pillars Invisible Sentence Training, Hamilton

SSPA invites you to a one-day workshop presented by Pillars on Invisible Sentence Training

About the Workshop

The workshop will provide community staff with the resources to support young people who have a parent go to prison, and the families and caregivers who are caring for them.  Participants will complete the training with a greater understanding of the trauma and social stigma children of prisoners can face.  The teaching includes best practice responses to help them stay in school, be healthy and well, live crime free lives and be positive members of the community.

The objectives of the workshop are:

  • Understand how imprisonment of parents or close family members affects children
  • Help families/carers tell children that their parent or family member is in prison 
  • Assist families to stay in touch with family members in prison by visiting and other ways
  • Assist families to prepare for the release of a parent or family member

Friday 9 August 2019, 9.00am to 4.00pm
The Western Community Centre, 46 Hyde Ave, HAMILTON

Engaging with Trauma is a practical, interactive workshop that uses a range of awareness and sensory modulation tools to aid in the development of resilience, emotional processing skills and safe grounding when working with people who have experienced trauma.

Led by Dr Janine Joyce, social worker and lecturer at Otago Polytechnic, this is a skills-development workshop that builds on Nicola Atwool’s popular series of seminars on trauma-informed practice.
