We need your diverse background, life experience and community-mindedness to build the new world.

We are a new world university. Like our namesake, Charles Darwin University (CDU), we think differently. We innovate, embrace change, challenge conventions and look for better ways. We’re not about tradition or legacy, privilege or exclusivity. We care about people as individuals, and about our wider society. We’re about what we can give to the world, rather than what we take. We cannot build a new world without diversity of thought, so we bring together people with unique perspectives in an inclusive and supporting learning environment to help them connect, discover and grow. This is the CDU difference.

The Australian Nurse-Family Partnership Program (ANFPP) is a nurse-led home visiting program that supports women pregnant with an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander child to help them become the best mum possible. ANFPP mums are offered support and guidance during early pregnancy and on into their baby’s infancy and toddlerhood. The ANFPP is an important early investment into the future of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in local communities. 

As Senior Practitioner: Perinatal Mental Health and Parenting - ANFPP you will provide perinatal mental health and parenting expertise in the ANFPP workforce development team to improve the support of program staff to effectively address the challenges that many clients experience. You will contribute to the provision of reflective supervision to Nurse Supervisors and work closely with implementing sites in continuous quality improvement activities.

To be successful you will be a registered Psychologist or Social Worker with mental health experience, and hold a postgraduate qualification in a relevant field, and / or equivalent relevant experience. Your demonstrated expertise in infant attachment and complex trauma coupled with your ability to work effectively with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander colleagues and stakeholders will see you excel in this role.
