Since completing ‘Trauma Through a Child’s Eyes,’ with Maggie Kline, she facilitates SE groups for children who have experienced family violence to help children increase their body awareness and access healthy self protective and defence responses to recovery from shock trauma.

Over the past 10 years Tania has worked in the Family Violence sector where she initiated the Children’s Therapeutic Program using art therapy and has had the opportunity to co-facilitate the Peek-a-boo program, which was designed for mothers and their babies to repair attachment ruptures caused by family violence. Tania has also worked with war veterans, sex offenders and refugees.
