Alina Morawska on Parenting and Family Intervention

27 March 2023

Associate Professor Alina Morawska, Director of UQ's Parenting and Family Support Centre featured on the Better Thinking podcast talking about promoting positive family relationships as an early intervention tool to promote lifelong health and wellbeing.

“It’s certainly a really exciting journey for most parents, but it’s also a really challenging journey,” Dr Morawska said.

“Lots of parents are wanting information, asking about information, confused about the information that they are getting, and I don’t think that makes the job of parenting any easier.

“It’s a job that’s changed quite drastically in the past few decades and there are so many new issues that parents are having to face around the rise of screens or devices in our world, internet and social media and of course the broader issues that cause anxiety for both the child and the parent such as the climate emergency.”
