Act for Kids Open Day Raises Vital Awareness in Adelaide

20 September 2018





Last month during National Child Protection Week, Adelaide Integrated Therapy Service (ITS) hosted its very first Open Day – and what a success!

The Adelaide team spent the day meeting and building relationships with referrers, the Minister for Child Protection, the Shadow Minister and many other industry professionals to share the importance of the work we do here at Act for Kids.

Jenny Suter, Act for Kids Team Leader and Clinical Psychologist in Adelaide, said the Open Day was invaluable because it gave Act for Kids the opportunity to network with local referrers and provide them with an understanding of what children experience when they come to the service.

“We conducted tours of the centre, shared therapeutic resources and explained the integrated therapy model we use to help children who have suffered abuse or neglect overcome their trauma.

“We hope this information will allow referrers to continue referring with confidence in our service, and give families a more personal and detailed explanation of where they are going for help,” she said.
