After many years of supplying books through our Melbourne and Brisbane
bookshops, and online since 2009, WE HAVE CLOSED THESE AVENUES

WE ARE NO LONGER AN ONLINE SHOP however the catalogues are still open and books are displayed.

The business will be concentrating on providing book displays at conferences
and workshops in Brisbane and the eastern states.

WE WILL STILL ACCEPT ORDERS from government and non-government service providers.
Books will be invoiced once an order is received. We will also provide books to individual customers.

We are also pleased to be able to provide copies of Janina Fisher's flipchart, Psychoeducational Aids for Working with Psychological Trauma, which we print in Australia. Payment may be made by EFT or credit card.


We are proud to be the bookseller at three special events in late February / early March 2017:
