2/4 The scourge of Parental Alienation
Stan Korosi was dragged unwillingly into the world of parental alienation when after separation and divorce he found his own child had inexplicably become hostile towards him and even his extended family. When he looked for help from legal practitioners and health professionals in Australia he found that little was known. Many in the field would not even admit that parental alienation existed. Looking further afield he found that there is reputable and evidence based research available in the United States.
9/4 One paycheque away from homelessness
The Reverend Bill Crews is known to all levels of society simply as “Bill”. For the past 40 years he has worked with the people who have “fallen through the cracks” and in the process has been recognised as one of the National Trust’s 100 National Living Treasures as well as receiving many other major awards.
On Youth Homelessness Matters Day 15 April and National Youth Week 10-19 April many others in the community will turn their thoughts to the increasing numbers of youths who come into the category of being homeless. The ABS in fact has three categories of homelessness. Homelessness does not just mean sleeping rough; it could mean for example,“couch surfing”.
16/4 CAFÉ (Canadian Association for Equality)
It may come as a surprise to many of our listeners that many of the problems we face in Australia relating to equality as it applies to all men, women, girls and boys are similar in a distant part of the world, namely Canada.
A hotbed of activity in Toronto Canada is CAFÉ so we speak to Justin Trottier who is the Founder and Board Member of that association about what is being done over there while we look for lessons on improvements everywhere.
CAFÉ has a current focus on the status, health and well-being of men and boys where attention, investment and support for educational and social programs stands at a level that is far from equal to the seriousness of the problem. In 2014 CAFÉ opened Toronto’s first “Men’s Centre” in downtown Toronto under the directorship of Justin Trottier.
23/4 The Diggers of WW1: Were they different?
No book on Australia covering the early years of the twentieth century could overlook the 61,500 of our men killed or listed as “missing” in World War 1. Another 156,000 had a fate that was sometimes worse, they were wounded, gassed or taken prisoner.
In his new book Australia 1901-2001 A Narrative History, Andrew Tink, former Member of State Parliament, tells us that like the school children of Villers-Bretonneux France we must never forget the heroism of our soldiers, the diggers of World War 1.
