Coming up…

October 8: Splitting … World Mental Health Day

It’s National Mental Health Week and World Mental Health Day is Saturday 10 October.

US studies show 15% of people aged 20-29 meet the criteria for Borderline and/or Narcissistic Personality Disorders and that prevalence appears to be increasing with each generation.

This week Bill Eddy, therapist, mediator and family lawyer, gives us a fascinating walk through the topics covered in his book Splitting: Protecting Yourself While Divorcing Someone with a Borderline or Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

October 15: Dads on the Inside

Ed Mosby is a psychologist well-renowned for his work in the fields of Indigenous and non-Indigenous mental health issues and Indigenous family violence. Using his considerable expertise and experience in the area of behaviour change Ed developed the Dads on the Inside program to help inmates at the Capricorn Correctional Centre turn their lives around. He has found that the prospect of having a positive influence on their children is a powerful driver for dads who find themselves incarcerated.


October 22: Grandparents Day for Alienated Grandmother

Grandparents are critical in the lives of their grandchildren. They not only provide direct care, unconditional love, guidance and wisdom for the children but they pass on family history, heritage, traditions and family values. When one parent alienates the other parent after family breakdown, this most often extends to grandparents and great-grandparents with devastating consequences for the children. 

Anne King is an alienated grandmother who shares her story of heartbreak for Grandparents Day.
