Specialising in education and training to support the human services sector
Bernadette Glass, Director at BG&A, has worked in the human services arena for 40 years – in the health, family, youth and housing support sectors and more recently in the aged care industry.
In the late 1990s, after gaining inspiration, practice and support from St Luke’s in Bendigo, she commenced training and consultation, presenting The Strengths Approach throughout the human services and early childhood education sector. Today Bernadette also works as a registered nurse in Aged Care.
Bernadette moves to where her work takes her – across Australia and to New Zealand. What inspires Bernadette today is our innate knowing that the quality of our relationships is what truly makes a difference in our work. It inspires the changes sought by our clients and the carers who support them.
A large component of Bernadette’s service has taken place in the Early Childhood Intervention sector (ECIS). She has worked with allied health workers and others to understand and develop the processes and skills involved in supporting families with children with a developmental delay or diagnosis of disability. Bernadette has consulted with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development in producing Strengths-based resources in Victoria.
