Before the session: We ask for a copy of any current Court Orders and an Interact Client File to be filled out.

You can usually take a photo and text copies of your orders if you don’t have an electronic copy.

During the session.

  • Step One: We will talk about what has led up to now including any court orders to get on the same page regarding the situation you are in. 
  • Step Two: They we will ask you what are the issues that you need to get resolved right now.  It is useful to prioritise so that your action plan has the things that are most urgent addressed first. 
  • Step Three: We will ask you a little bit more about your family, the children and any extended family members or others that are actively involved in your family.  Families are more complex than just mum, dad and the kids. 
  • Step Four: Now we ask you what you actually want longer term and help you to turn your wishes into a realistic goal.
  • Step Five: One you are clear on what you want and have identified the important issues that are standing in your way we help you to develop your goal plan.  That may include services that Interact provides such as safety planning or Family Dispute Resolution or it might be services you are already working with or new services we can introduce you to.  

We provide you with a summary which is a one-page overview of your current situation and goal and an action plan page.  

We also update your Client File which you can use with other services.
