IJCC Video 3: The Super Listener
From Chung-Yan Kong on January 16th, 2021
Improving Justice in Child Contact is a project exploring child contact decisions in families affected by domestic abuse. It is funded by the European Union’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (2014-2020). Child contact is understood to be the systems and court processes which decide whether and how a child sees a parent that they are not living with.
It is a partnership project across Bulgaria, Cyprus, Portugal, Romania and Scotland.
Sue McKeller, Scottish Women’s Aid, recorded this this video (in English) with Dawn Ross who is the Children's Rights Officer - Child Contact in West Lothian Council, Scotland. In this video, they encourage people to use the project's Super Listener resources, which were written and made by children and young people. The resources can be used as a checklist by those who work with children and young people, who want those who are supporting them to be kind, supportive and good listeners.
