Abstract: PARKAS (Parents Accepting Responsibility – Kids Are Safe) is a collaborative venture between Mental Health Services for Kids and Youth and Djerriwarrh Health Services in the outer western suburbs of Melbourne. PARKAS is a two tiered ten week program which addresses prevention and early intervention in relation to the transmission of inter-generational familial violence and the treatment of complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in children. It targets children (8-12 years) and parents/carers, who have been exposed to ongoing family violence. Predominantly PARKAS has focused on mothers/carers and their children, however, a dads’ and kids’ program has recently been piloted.
