Episode Four

“Many children in our community confront the experience of parents being arrested on a daily basis. When we arrest adults, more often than not, we’re arresting parents.” – Dr Catherine Flynn.

In this episode we discuss what happens to the 100,000 children who have a parent arrested every year in Australia. This is a very personal topic as I (Robbie) have had a parent who has been arrested multiple times.

We also focus on the parent and lack of standardised procedure to deal with these situations, often fraught with complexity. Dr Catherine Flynn from the Monash University, who has spent decades as a social worker and researching in this area, takes us deep into this topic that is rarely spoken about.
