Investing in children and relationships

Strengthening Families through Restorative Practice and Family Group Conferencing

By Paul Nixon, Chief Social Worker – Child, Youth and Family, New Zealand


On Tuesday 16 May 2017, Junction Australia was pleased to have Paul Nixon attend our Annual Conference. Paul provided the Keynote speech which addressed how the use of Family Group Conferences and Restorative Practices can transform the way we think about and work with children and families in our own communities. The underlying principles of client self-determination, family and community empowerment, citizens’ rights, culturally responsive practice and partnerships across stakeholders sit at the heart of this approach.
