We are delighted for this course to be facilitated by Kate Headley. Kate has had an extensive career in speech pathology. After spending over a decade delivering services to children and adults with complex support needs associated with disability across rural and remote Western NSW, she progressed into clinical leadership roles. These roles focused on designing, implementing and supporting practice change that ensured people with a disability, their families and communities had access to evidence-based, person-centred services that were safe and effective.
In 2018 Kate joined the LINKS Trauma Healing service – a three-year research project funded through the NSW state government to research the impacts of multidisciplinary intervention for children living in statutory Out of Home Care. Kate’s interest in complex trauma and her growing experience in this area has led to her becoming a subject matter expert within this area of working with children who have experienced complex trauma. Kate has collaborated with Speech Pathology Australia, Emerging Minds, the Mental Health Professionals Network and health districts across NSW to develop online education resources, deliver training, and provide clinical support to practitioners working with children who have experienced complex trauma.
