Neurodiverse Young People

Healthy Relationships for Neurodiverse Young People

A free face-to-face course over four weeks to support and encourage the development of strong and healthy relationships.

Who is it for?

This group program is for Neurodiverse Young People.

This group program is run in person by our Disability Royal Commission counselling team, based at our Illawarra Centre in Wollongong.

What will it be like?

Healthy Relationships for People with a Disability supports people living with a disability to have relationships – both online and face-to-face – that are safe and fun with people they are attracted to. During this program you’ll participate in discussions and guided activities with others in a safe and supportive environment.

The program will cover:

  • Developing self-care practices that are right for you
  • Boundary setting and keeping yourself safe in relationships
  • Dealing with and managing feelings including sadness and loneliness
  • Post-group support - staying connected with helpful services and people
  • Learning about and practicing “I matter / You matter” styles of relating

Share stories, enjoy thoughtful group discussions and participate in fun activities to learn key differences between healthy, unhealthy and abusive relationships.

 

Relationships Australia NSW’s Ability Groupwork Program and Wollongong Youth Services join forces to offer this tailored group for neurodiverse young people living, loving and relating in the Illawarra.

Healthy relationships are crucial for our emotional and physical wellbeing. Join us for this four-week course to develop skills and strategies for identifying and understanding what great relationships look like, how they feel, and how to support them.

Together with other participants, we will:

  • Participate in role-play exercises
  • Practice respectful conversations
  • Enjoy art and craft activities.

There will be plenty of opportunities to ask and discuss any questions you have along the way!

Upcoming group program dates

Prior to the group starting, our facilitators will have an individual online session with each participant to gain an understanding of needs, provide an opportunity to ask questions or voice concerns around accessing the group.

In person delivered in partnership with Wollongong Youth Services
