Lisa and Liz work in partnership with CATS (Centre for Abuse and Trauma Studies) Middlesex University UK to
commence the introduction of an accessible evidence-based attachment assessment to Australia.
Lisa Gardiner has worked predominately in the areas mental health, early childhood trauma, women's health, neurodevelopment and attachment. She has worked with individuals and families, age and gender.
Her career has spanned across sectors in government, non government and private organisations as a practitioner, executive and governance. For 10 years she was a co-owner, director & principal of a Clinical Consultancy. She uses her experience to support individuals, teams and organisations to develop, grow and achieve positive outcomes.
Liz Sanders has a background in Social Work and Family Therapy and over thirty years experience in the human services sector, working in both government and non-government organisations.
Liz specialises in working with vulnerable children and adults for whom the experience of early abuse, trauma and disrupted attachment impact negatively on family life. In 2005 Liz moved to Australia from the UK and was responsible for developing and implementing the reunification practice for Australia’s first Social Benefit Bond. Liz has an ongoing commitment to working with parents and developing their capacity to grow.
We work in partnership locally, nationally and internationally as we believe that connection is the foundation for excellence in practice. Working relationally is essential for those who have experienced developmental trauma and disrupted attachment and we consider that this should be modelled within and between organisations.
