Healthy Relationships for People with a Disability
Who is it for?
This group program is for all people living with a disability in NSW.
This group program is run online 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.
Healthy relationships are crucial to our emotional and physical wellbeing. Join us for this four-
week course to develop skills and strategies for identifying and understanding what they look like, how they feel and how to support them.
We’ll practice respectful communication, and tactics for recognising different styles of relating and behaving to each other. Discussions will be led through gentle and enjoyable role-play scenarios, as well as art and craft activities.
There will be plenty of opportunities to ask and discuss any questions you have along the way!
This group is offered by Relationships Australia NSW’s specialist Ability Groupwork team. We can also refer participants to our FREE Disability Royal Commission Counselling services.
