Why QUALIFIED and EXTERNAL Clinical Supervision and Counselling is SO important for CYFS staff.

Our story is too long & complex for me to wish to submit it in full to your blog, but suffice to say, we have been royally screwed over by 1 particular CYFS worker intent on destroying our family.

We went to them seeking help, and have done all that has been asked of us. Every step of the way this 1 worker has made it an uphill battle to get our family back together. It is only the sheer determination of my wife & I to make things work that our children have 2 loving parents under the same roof.

This worker seemed to be VERY anti-male (we found out her own marriage had just busted up), but after many reasoned pleas with support from other agencies (we could demonstrate she was doing the kids more harm than good), her management refused to assign a different worker. We don’t have an issue with the agency as such- we have met some perfectly nice & reasonable workers we would be happy to work with, and lets face it, it’s a bloody awful job they have to do.

But there seems NO AVENUE FOR COMPLAINT against workers who exhibit gross incompetence & prejudice in their work. And they have the power to destroy your family and make life a living hell!!! We are finally nearly free from this one worker, so I’m not prepared to name names for fear of recrimination. (It’s a small office she works at; wouldn’t take much for her to put 2 & 2 together!)

Feel free to publish my (anonymous) words of support nonetheless.
Cheers & good luck keeping the site up.
