The Common Approach – Conversations with young people and families that get you to the heart of the matter

The Common Approach, developed in and for the Australian context by ARACY, is a research-based, prevention-focused, flexible way of working to help you have quality conversations with young people and their families about all aspects of their wellbeing. These aspects fall into six wellbeing areas that align with The Nest: Loved and Safe, Healthy, Participating, Positive Sense of Culture and Identity, Material Basics, and Learning. CAFFSA is excited to offer this course for $595 (ex GST) for members or $655 (ex GST) for non-members.
It encourages those working with children, young people, and families to work in partnership with them, focus on strengths, place the child at the centre of the conversation, and consider all aspects of a family’s circumstances.
It can help professionals prepare for conversations with a child or family, provide a framework for families to develop action plans and check progress, and record discussions to develop better continuity between interactions.
The Common Approach is supported by a suite of resources that facilitates conversations with families by providing prompts and guidance for practitioners. It is not a standardised risk assessment tool, but rather a simple, versatile way of working that enables child-led and child-focused discussion across all areas of wellbeing.
Who is The Common Approach for?
The Common Approach is useful to anyone who interacts with children, young people, and their families, and those who manage staff or policy work in this setting. This includes educators, health and medical staff, child protection staff, researchers, and policymakers. This workshop is delivered by ARACY-endorsed Common Approach Trainers and is supported by a high range of professional resources that are supplied on the day.
