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.

Scott D Miller, PhD, co-founder of the International Center for Clinical Excellence (ICCE) in the US, came to Melbourne in December 2017 to deliver “What Works in Therapy” workshops to a broad range of external professionals as well as Relationships Australia Victoria staff.
At the ICCE, Scott and his center co-founders have been reviewing research in various psychotherapy treatment approaches over for 40 years, looking at the outcomes and effectiveness of psychotherapy and the factors that affect these outcomes. Scott presented on this large body of research in Melbourne, in a very humorous and engaging style. In particular, he discussed how therapists can improve their own work and practices can make effective changes to service delivery.
The evaluations from the workshops were extremely positive.
Participant feedback included:
It was fabulous!
Scott is a consummate performer with an impressive evidence message.
It’s the best training I’ve been to for some time.
I want to try to use the evaluation pre and post session.
The focus on the psychotherapist’s self-development and trying to challenge yourself.
The general unpacking of therapy and getting out of our comfort zone.
There were so many parts that were “lightbulbs”. It was great!
Scott has written a number of books and publications, and developed evaluation tools that therapists can use. Information about these resources are available on his website www.scottdmiller.com
Two of Scott’s books are also available from RAV at a special discount price. See our flyer for more information, or email email@example.com or call the RAV Training team on (03) 8573 2222 to purchase a copy.
