Format Seminar/Presentation
Presenters DR JAN SMITH, CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST
Description END OF YEAR FUNCTION & AGM OF THE VICTORIAN SECTION OF THE
COLLEGE OF CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGISTS
About the presenter(s) Jan is a Clinical Psychologist and Psychotherapist with a prior training in Psychiatric Social Work. She has worked in the public mental health sector in London, Newcastle (N.S.W.) and Melbourne over a thirty year period. Her PhD is in 'Stress Resilience in Children'. Her other qualifications are the life experiences of being a mother, a single parent, a step-mother and eventually, a grandmother.

Jan has spent many years developing a model of parallel and combined parents and children's groups which has been adapted for adolescents, pre-schoolers and infants as well as the initial school-aged children. This work has only been possible with the help of teams of colleagues, post-graduate students and research assistants at the Royal Children's' Hospital, Southern Health, Monash Medical Centre and Eastern Health, resulting in several international publications.

Until recently she was a consultant to the South East Centre Against Sexual Assault, and a facilitator in the Risk Assessment Management Project pilot program in schools in the southern sector of the State of Victoria.

For the past nine years Jan has conducted court ordered assessments at the Children's Court Clinic in Melbourne and been cross examined as an expert witness in the Children's Court.

For recreation Jan has been a keen mountaineer for the last decade, climbing towards the summit of Mount Everest as her ultimate goal. Finally, in May this year she succeeded in achieving her dream, becoming the oldest Australian and second oldest woman in the world to do so.
