Emerging Minds Learning terms of use

Please read this information carefully.

The use of the Emerging Minds Learning website by you indicates an acceptance of and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions contained below. If you do not agree with these terms and conditions do not use the Emerging Minds Learning website. If you have any queries in relation to these terms and conditions, we recommend that you seek your own independent legal advice.

It is agreed:

Use of training materials

The information contained in the training materials, including training information, reference to resources and practice examples and supporting materials, is presented for workforce education and training purposes only. The information contained in the education and training materials does not replace, supplement or abrogate professional or clinical judgment and decision making.

Safety statement

The content of the training material includes information about children and families experiencing or exposed to health problems, adversity and trauma. You may experience a range of emotions, including sadness or discomfort, as you view and hear from some of the children and parents. This can be experienced at a personal level on behalf of children and families in this situation generally, or on behalf of children and families you know. As you work through the course, it is important to be aware of your own emotional responses. Seek help if needed.

Here are some tips for self-care:

  • We do not recommend undertaking the entire course in one sitting. Give yourself some breaks. Even if you feel that you don’t need a break, it’s a good idea to take one anyway and come back later.
  • Be aware of your emotions as you progress through the course, and take action if you are starting to feel stressed or upset. Consider doing something for yourself that you enjoy.
  • Be aware of your emotions after the course is completed. Think of things you enjoy and do one of those things.
  • Spend time with friends, family or others that care about you.
  • If you find you are struggling please talk with your supervisor, seek help or call Lifeline on 13 11 14.

We ask that you take care of yourself throughout the training program and if you need a break, please take one. The dramatised families in this resource are fictional and the family members are portrayed by actors.
