Team DFTB. Rachel Callander: Love, Life and Awesomeness at DFTB17, Don't Forget the Bubbles, 2018. Available at:

This talk was recorded live at DFTB17 in Brisbane. Watch out for more talks from our inaugural conference in the lead up to DFTB18.. If you haven’t done so yet then book some time off for August and come to Melbourne for our next amazing conference. Check out www.dftb18.com for more details. You can also join Rachel and Mary Freer for a workshop on conversations around caring. See the website for more details.

Rachel Callander is an award winning photographer and mother who has turned her talent towards advocating for children with ‘Super Powers‘. She has documented her journey in a beautiful book, the Super Power Baby Project.


Her raw words remind us that every word we say has an impact far beyond what we are taught. The wrong words can harm our therapeutic relationships but the right ones…. the right ones can be AWESOME.

Our very own Grace Leo captured her thoughts in just one page of SketchNotes. We’d love to hear what you think of the talk in the comments section below.


You can watch her entire talk below (and don’t forget the tissues).
