Tues 8th November

Presented by Dr Siobhan  Casey


*Start and end times are in Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT) Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, Canberra, UTC+11:00


The Q & A sessions are offered to small groups of participants using Zoom interactive video conferencing. The sessions will run for 1.5 hours and have a maximum of 20 participants and a minimum of 10 participants. The maximum of 20 participants is to allow discussion, sharing and support for all participant questions.


Participants will be invited to submit specific questions around the specific topic to be addressed prior to the session. At the beginning of each session a list of questions to be addressed will be presented. This will be followed with a semi-structured discussion around the listed questions. Depending on the questions, there may be a short powerpoint and/or video to watch. After this there will be time for open questions and individual case evaluation and discussion and participants are particularly encouraged to share their experiences, difficulties and concerns during this section. Each session will have a particular emphasis so that you can choose which session best suits your current needs. There is no restriction on the number of sessions you can attend.
