A taste of our past and current activities

  • Working with dementia patients - determine their interests and modify to suit individuals
  • Supporting children in foster care: helping individual children with homework and outings
  • Develop an education program for victims of domestic violence
  • Design an evaluation strategy to provide feedback to a network of community organisations

"My PACE experience gave me an invaluable insight into the daily running of a psychology practice. I was able to develop communication skills, both written and verbal, and make connections in the workplace."
Daniel Sturman, PSY399 Student, Mindset Abilities Paramatta
