New Doctor isn’t being well received.
Had our second visit today in order to put together their mental health care plans to continue access to their psychologist at school. The little super hero plonked herself down in her corner…..while we addressed her sister’s needs… Scoring 38 on the depression scale they used, she has been struggling lately in spite of her … Continue reading
The down hill slide
Increasingly in recent weeks there has been less bounce to her step. Even extending to something more akin to a slow commando crawl…. I suspect we are for the first time seeing her experience a depressive episode without the waters muddied by agitation and aggression.

Family Court, Child Protection, what do they have to do with protecting YOUR children?
Absolutely Nothing in the first instance of discovery of abuse and that is the God awful truth. Simply don’t take it there until investigations have completed, it isn’t what they deal with. Few if any agencies will actually inform parents of this fact, it is assumed by all that parents already know that it is … Continue reading
The importance of a good therapeutic relationship
Been chatting via SMS with one of the little super heros psychologists. I can see the clock, she is in her own time. Giving each other a small pat on the back, she has become a good friend, as we make our way further towards discharge and it looks more and more like we have … Continue reading
