This webinar is suitable for workers in the AOD, mental health, allied health and welfare sectors.



We will also provide some of our observations which can ultimately lead to improving the life of the person beyond the legal matter.

Through an exploration of the work that we do, the webinar will provide participants with the opportunity to:
