“Free to Be Me” Child’s Programme
Family violence or abuse can take many forms and affects everyone in the family (both women and children) in very different ways.
Healing from family violence is a process that leads to a brighter future.
If your child has experienced or been around family violence, including verbal, physical or emotional abuse, our “Free to Be Me” Child’s programme” will give them support and confidence they need to feel safe again.
We offer separate programmes for both children and women. This allows us to provide tools and information to you and your family in a way that’s right for you.
Free to Be Me is a programme for children who have witnessed or experienced family/domestic violence. The child’s programme can be completed either as individual sessions or in a group setting. It depends on what’s right for the child.
The programme is FREE and children can take part with or without a protection order in place. In order to cater to the developmental stage of your child, we run groups in age ranges of 5 to 7 years, 8 to 10 years, 11 to 13 years, or sibling groups.
In a kind, safe and friendly environment children will explore:
- strengths – mine and my family
- what is family violence
- keeping safe
- when I feel angry, scared or sad
- how to be angry in an ok way
- dealing with loss and change
- conflict and problem solving
- positive self-image and building self-esteem
- feeling good
