Young people can face all sorts of pressures – including problems at school, with friends or at home.
connectEDspace is a website by Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV), dedicated to young people to help provide all the information they need to deal with the stuff they go through each day.
Aboriginal Family and Relationship Support
RAV provides support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and individuals to help strengthen family relationships.
Counselling provides an opportunity to talk with a professionally trained person to discuss couple issues, conflicts with friends, relationship breakdown, parenting, domestic violence, anxiety, depression, grief, sexual problems, childhood sexual abuse, stress and work related tensions and disputes.
Reclaim is a dedicated support service for adults surviving child sexual abuse in organisational settings. The program has been funded by the Australian Government to support the work of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
Emotionally Intelligent Parenting: Learn how to better understand and interact with your child.
The Kew Centre of Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV) is pleased to provide a new parenting program, Tuning in to Kids for Couples.
Backed by evidence-based research, this program focuses on supporting parents to develop key skills to recognise and respond to their child’s emotions, conflict management, and helping their child develop emotional intelligence.
RAV is providing this free, eight-week program as a part of a research study conducted by the University of South Australia, to explore whether the program is helpful for parents and caregivers and their children, and the program’s effect on the relationship between them.
The program is for all types of couples, including couples who are married, de-facto, separated, step-, or biological/non-biological, same-sex, and non-custodial parents. It also includes couples or two people caregiving for children in foster or kinship care.
Tuning in to Kids for Couples teaches parents/caregivers to:
understand children’s brain development and emotions
help their children manage difficult feelings such as fear, sadness, frustration, and anger
build parent-parent and parent-child emotional connections
stay calm when dealing with their children’s challenging behaviours

enjoy time with their children and other parent/caregiver
work together when responding to their children’s emotions
