Who is it for?

Women: Choice & Change is an 8-session group for women who have experienced family violence.
The aim of the course is to provide women with the skills and understanding necessary to help them move forward in their lives.

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 group offers a safe, supportive environment where you can share your thoughts and ideas, and learn from others experiencing similar challenges. Group participants say they feel less alone, isolated and judged, and that groups help in finding new solutions to dilemmas or problems.

Our groups typically have 8-12 participants. The group 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 group program is an effective way to gain the confidence to turn negative habits and cycles into positive ones, manage strong emotions constructively and create the future you want.

Key outcomes

  • Explore the current situation, recognise unhealthy relationship patterns and understand the impact of aggression and control in your relationship, on yourself and your family.
  • Gain new perspectives.
  • Work through change.

How can it help me?

During the group, participants will have a chance to connect with others who have had similar experiences, to talk through their issues and to consider positive choices and strategies for the future.

The program can assist women in:

  • Understanding the impact of family violence
  • Grief and loss
  • Communication and conflict resolution
  • Stress management
  • Self-esteem
  • Equality in relationships.
