SUE DIGGLES MEMORIAL PRACTICE PAPER
Sue Diggles joined the CPPAQ Board in 2014 and sadly passed away in 2015. To recognise her outstanding contribution to CPPAQ and the child protection field in Queensland, the Brisbane Catholic Education Office sponsors an annual practice paper in her name.
Topic: Therapeutic work with children who have experienced abuse and neglect
About this paper:
Abuse and neglect has adverse effects on the social, emotional, psychological, and cognitive development of children. Many children benefit from therapeutic interventions to address these impacts. This paper will address what a child therapist does, what attachment disorders are, which children benefit from therapeutic interventions and which do not, and how other professionals and people involved with children – including teachers, caseworkers, and carers – can help the therapeutic process.
Chair: Her Honour Judge Deborah Richards, Judge of the District Court of Queensland, President of the Childrens Court of Queensland
Speaker: Lorren Arezio, Clinical Psychologist, Evolve Therapeutic Services
