Who is it for?
This group is designed for participants to learn how to address grief and loss issues and understand and deal effectively with children’s reaction to change. Participants will develop ways to preserve the new family bonds and be able to build positive futures for the new family unit. Through involvement in the program participants are able to access support in their parenting role.
What will it be like?
It is common for people to experience some initial anxiety over the prospect of participating in a group, and don’t know what to expect. Being in a seminar offers a safe, supportive environment where you can share your thoughts and ideas, and learn from others experiencing similar challenges. Other participants say they feel less alone, isolated and judged, and that groups help in finding new solutions to dilemmas or problems.
Our seminars typically have 8-12 participants. The facilitators provide information, create discussion, allow for self-reflection, goal setting and learning new skills. You will experience a positive, practical approach that builds on strengths within yourself and in your relationships.
Participating in a program is an effective way to gain the confidence to turn negative habits and cycles into positive ones, manage the challenges of being a single parent constructively and create the future you want.
- Clarify your problems.
- Gain new perspectives.
- Work through change.
