THE Bundaberg Family Relationship Centre has released an educational DVD for indigenous families experiencing separation.

Bundaberg Family Relationship Centre general manager Anne McWhirter said the film, Consider the Jarjums, used local actors and came about when it was realised there was no resource specifically for indigenous clients.

“We needed to develop some specific indigenous products that we could work with our indigenous clients,” she said.

“It has taken us a couple of years to pull everything together.”

The DVD helps separating parents focus on the problems their children are having. It has already been shown to two parents.
