No cost to attend this special MHPN event.
The Robinsons are a family characterised by volatile interpersonal relationships and underlying mental health and personality issues.
Following a particularly bad argument, at home between parents Jim and Jodie, the situation spirals out of control. In a few short hours, the health professionals who work with the Robinson family will be drawn into a frightening scenario involving not only family members, but also the school, the police, and the media.
How will our panel respond?
Broadcast live, this activity is unscripted and unrehearsed. The panel have had no forewarning as to how the scenario will unfold.
The session host, Professor Mark Creamer will guide the panel of five professionals, all experts in their field, through a scenario that escalates quickly and unexpectedly.
At key points different panel members will be introduced and invited to consider how they would respond to the situation as presented, deciding in-situ what steps to take to support the safety, and mental health and wellbeing of the individual family members, extended family, and the local and wider community.
At the session’s conclusion, attendees will have a better understanding of:
the skills and expertise that different professions bring to supporting the safety and mental health and wellbeing of individuals, families and communities
how working as part of a team can better support individuals, families and communities in crisis situations.
All attendees will receive a Statement of Attendance to allow self-reporting for CPD purposes. This activity has not been accredited by the RACGP.
