We have developed resources and workshops on leadership, reflective practice and supervision. We draw together a range of concepts including neuroscience, attachment theories and leadership, and help participants apply these in practical ways.  We regularly provide in-house supervision training for community services organisations and government departments.  We have developed supervision resources as well as co-authoring a highly-regarded manual on supervision for middle managers in child protection in Victoria.
