December 14: Suicide Row
Michael Griffith … in conversation with Glen Poole

Michael Griffith is a playwright and theatre director whose new show Suicide Row premiered in Melbourne in November.

The play tells the story of four Australian men who find themselves stuck on the way after discovering that their individual suicide attempts have miraculously failed.

The play, aimed at men both young and older, is powerful but not bleak, funny but not black, and while it has a clear anti-suicide message, it does not preach. More importantly, it is written with the express aim of helping to reduce the high levels of male suicide in Australia.

December 21: Reflective Parenting
Dr Alistair Cooper … in conversation with Bill Kable

Dr Alistair Cooper joins us from London to talk about how to make a positive impact on your relationship with your child, starting from the development of the baby’s first relationship with you as parents, to how you can be more reflective in relationships with toddlers, children and young people. He talks from a dad’s perspective drawing on content from his co-authored book Reflective Parenting with practical strategies for everyday interactions to help your child achieve their full potential.


December 28: Transformation: Turning tragedy into triumph
Dr Tim Sharp … in conversation with Bill Kable
