Professor Fiona Arney, Chair of Child Protection and Director of the Australian Centre for Child Protection at the University of South Australia, will be presenting a free public seminar as part of the Master of Family Studies Seminar Series presented by the Family Action Centre at the University of Newcastle.
Titled Think Child, Think Family, Think Community: Multidisciplinary approaches to supporting families from refugee background, the seminar is a learning opportunity not to be missed for professionals, practitioners and students.
