Judith Staff is a primary school teacher, and mainly teaches Early Years. She has left teaching a few times to work with women and girls who have survived physical and sexual violence and abuse. For the past few years, Judith has worked on a government-funded violence reduction initiative for young children aged 3 and up. Judith is married and has three teenage children.
In this episode, Judith discusses her catalogue of complex childhood trauma which took her an a winding career pathway, to currently teaching a government-funded violence reduction program for 3 to 6 year-olds in areas where there are high levels of violence. Judith is committed to amplifying the voices of children, helping them develop self-worth and self-belief, and advocating for little girls so they know that what they have to say is important and that their voices will be heard.
