National Families Week in Tasmania

Positive Solutions is a grass-roots Tasmanian Not-for-Profit Organisation that has been providing support to our community for nearly 30 years, adapting to the changing needs of Tasmanians. Positive Solutions has certainly seen a lot during its many years working with separating families, workplace & Community conflict and providing counselling support to individuals, couples and families. It really is no wonder then that Positive Solutions is an Organisation that understands the needs of our Community.

What many don’t realise is Positive Solutions is the Tasmanian branch of Step-Families Australia, providing step family specific counselling, mediation and support. “The changing needs of families in Tasmania is seeing more and more families ask for support with step-family issues,” says Family Program Manager, Maryse Street. “We identified this need in our Community and responded. As a result, we now offer step-family specific counselling and mediation. We also offer counselling and mediation for all modern families including ‘whole-of-family mediation’ where sometimes we have all members of a family including young people, in the one room discussing the issues and working toward ways forward.”

In honour of National Families Week 15-21 May, Positive Solutions is hosting a seminar to assist all kinds of modern Tasmanian families achieve successful family relationships. The Organisation is hosting a FREE one hour seminar at 162 Macquarie Street with Counsellors and Mediators trained in working with complex modern family issues. “Keep in mind, many of us have experienced the issues first hand and really understand,” Says Family Program Manager, Mishelle Zara. “We hope that this free seminar will provide skills and tips for creating harmonized successful relationships.”
