It has been a privilege to work with the many
individuals, programs, organisations
and government departments who have shared our vision of creating environments
to positively change the outcomes for those accessing child and family support
services in Australia and overseas.
I have been very fortunate to have been able to share
my professional life with my colleagues: Vicki Brown who kept the organization
organized and me on track; Howard, of course, who kept me thinking and striving
to always do better and to develop better applications for knowledge and
skills; Jenny Howell who pushed me to develop new perspectives and skills to
work with young people with problematic sexual behaviours;
and Sharon Atkins for contributing to our trauma training and being a sounding
board as I struggled to always be accountable in my opinions. And heartfelt
thanks to my son Will for designing, developing and
managing my website. Always available,
sensitive to my needs and responsive. A great sense of security!
Bath, with John Seita, has recently published The Three
Pillars of Transforming Care: Trauma and Resilience in the Other 23 Hours. This book is written to be helpful for those
providing direct care for children who have experienced multiple chronic and
ongoing adverse life events. It provides
a framework for understanding traumagenic needs and
practical skills for intervening to meet those needs and provide better
outcomes for children
The book can be
either read alone or in conjunction with attending the Three Pillars of Transforming Care: Essentials for working with
traumatised children and young people in the Other 23 Hours course.

Newly updated: Three Pillars of
Transforming Care: Essentials for working with traumatised children and young
people in the Other 23 Hours course.
training course was developed by Dr Howard Bath and Dr Diana Boswell to provide
a practice framework for trauma informed care. It has been widely implemented
by out-of-home care providers in Queensland, South Australia, New South Wales,
Western Australia and the Northern Territory since 2008. The program was
recently adopted by the international organisation Save The Children as
their core training for Swedish programs working with refugee unaccompanied
minors. The practice framework has been adopted by Norwegian government
agencies supporting children and families.
The Three Pillars course has
been delivered in programs across the USA and in New Zealand. The train-the-trainer program was provided
for a consortium of out-of-home care providers in Alberta, Canada in 2018.
the course was introduced to child and family support services in Ireland.
