The Over 1,000 Voices survey and Hope and Healing by Design workshops (April to May 2017) highlighted the complex needs of children and young people who are living in residential care. The Hope and Healing Masterclass Series is an important part of the professional development strategy that is being implemented to respond to identified needs and facilitate therapeutic skill development for Queensland residential care workers.
