This training Manual was written in 2014 by Dr Sue Green and expertly informed by VANISH staff team and VANISH members as well as professionals in related fields. VANISH has now completed the state-wide roll out of the two-day training and has received excellent feedback on the quality of the content and the materials and the effectiveness of the training.
It is the intention of VANISH to continue to provide training in Victoria to increase the knowledge of professionals of the impact of past and forced adoption practices, and to enhance their skills in referral and treatment. The manual has been updated to incorporate changes to legislation and new resources.
