Childbirth Education Association (CEA)
The Childbirth Education Association Darwin is a community based organisation which provides information and support for women and their families and promotes self- reliance and confidence in pregnancy, birth and parenting. CEA provide support through education sessions, pre-natal and post-natal exercise classes; library and general resources. Childbirth Education Association is also a community advocate for birthing services.
We work with each child in every family in a community to realise their aspirations for the cultural, social and economic wellbeing of the next generation. Education and opportunity are at the very heart of our approach, which involves working with Traditional Custodians and Elders as they lead the way in implementing the Children’s Ground Platform.
The Children’s Ground Integrated Learning and Wellbeing platform tackles the social, structural and economic determinants and inequities that currently underpin the devastating life experiences of children living in communities of extreme economic poverty. We respond to the multi-level influences on children’s development and life from pre-birth to 25 years.
The service system is designed to create a safe environment for children and families. This is achieved by privileging and respecting the First Language of the individual well as their culture and identity. The culture and identity of a child is fundamental to their learning and wellbeing.

CORP Workplace Solutions
You may have made contact with EASA (the provider of our Psychological services) in the past and may have been surprised by the depth of services we offer in the Organisational Services area. With encouragement from some of our valued customers we are ensuring that other workplaces are getting the opportunity to access these services too.
CORP was created to meet the growing demand for a dedicated area specialising in support about a range of common challenges. We aim for a dedicated area for employees to explore their own development, and organisations to grow their employees.
We felt that all too commonly Organisations were turning to the South for Services that we have been providing for over 30 years, our challenge is getting the word out. With the ‘Tomorrow’s Territory’ promotion underway, Territory wide, our focus is for NT people to utilise NT services and learn that select local services can service the Territory just as good if not better than down South!
The changing environment in which you operate poses opportunity, to do more with less, to create an adaptable, professional, flexible and skilled workforce to support organisational change and redesign.
We’ve noticed engagement in our services, can be later in the change process and we are engaged in efforts to deal with unintended outcomes. The biggest challenge is engaging in reflection before change occurs as well as during the process. We aim to assist and support your Leadership in the change process. With our background and use of EASA’s psychological expertise we have a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw upon.
EASA’s basis of psychological knowledge particularly in what we now know about the brain lifts our workshops return on investment. We’ve all attended training that hasn’t engaged us. Growth and development for an individual or an organisation has been researched extensively, this helps us understand whole brain thinking/planning at both the organisation and individual level.
CORP knows that: “we’ve always done it this way’’ relates to our comfort zones, that change or adaption is tough but often necessary in changing environments. Ask how CORP can support your progress and growth tapping into your resources and assisting you to lead.
Services that CORP offers:
- Group Facilitation
- Workplace Investigation
- Conflict assessment
- Conflict Coaching
- Life Coaching
