Reasons for Referral: 

Child Safety has been involved with the family for 5 years due to severe domestic violence. Peter Heathrow was charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm six months ago due to the injuries that Elizabeth and Benjamin sustained during a domestic violence incident in 2015 and has been incarcerated for the next 5 years. Elizabeth down plays the effects this trauma has had on the children. Elizabeth has no knowledge of building a secure attachment to the children and demonstrates ambivalence towards the children's emotional wellbeing. 

All children are currently living with Elizabeth and are socially isolated. Elizabeth requires support with managing the children's behaviours as they exhibit trauma based behaviours, setting firm boundaries and establishing healthy family routines. The trauma based behaviours include anxiety, hyperactivity, insecure attachment and sleep disturbances.
