Today's show was a vital look at the abuse uncovered in the 4 Corners Australia's Shame episode which aired this week on the ABC
Guests include Sally Neighbour, the executive Producer for 4 Corners, Jean Gamble who works as a psychotherapist in private practice, Dean Quirke currently working with individuals coming from disadvantaged backgrounds about anger and behaviour on primary prevention programs in schools
Judy Hopwood was my guest today to discuss Homelessness in the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai community. Judy worked as the former MP for Hornsby and set up the original Homelessness Task Force in Hornsby. Hornsby are pioneers when it comes to delivering outreach which does not make homeless people a collective group and puts the whole issue in the 'too hard basket' but works with people who are homeless as individuals who need tailored support. The Task Force now incorporates Ku-ring-gai and are addressing the growing concern of people looking for assistance in the Gordon area. The fundamentals of this research are transferable anywhere in the world, learning from each other.
Key for change is relationships and seeing all people as equal regardless of their circumstances.
My guests in the studio today were Jean Gamble who work in private practice and Trudi-Anne Carmody who works as a hairdresser and has a wealth of experience connecting with clients on any number of issues.
This interview was full of humour about the reality of peri-menopause, menopause and post menopause yet is applicable to anyone who knows, lives, or is a woman of any age :-)
