Domestic violence and family violence often takes place ‘behind closed doors’. In the past it was seen very much as a ‘private family matter’ that society should not get involved with.

It can be difficult for those who are, or who have experienced violence to come forward because they may feel isolated, ashamed, confused or just too afraid to speak about their experiences. Sometimes they blame themselves for the violence because they have been told by their partner on many occasions, that they ‘provoked’ it.

"Caring Parents" Groups

This 10-week group program looks at how beliefs and attitudes about mothering or fathering influence our parenting behaviours, and how these subsequently impact on children’s growth and development. The group will provide up-to-date information, resources and practical ideas for supportive parenting, as well as the chance to connect with other women in mothering roles or other men in fathering roles, all with the shared goal of promoting the safety and well-being of children.

Separate groups for women and men.

When : Women's group 24th January - 28th March 2017 on Tuesdays 11.30am to 2pm. Participants attend all 10 weeks. Men's group 25th January - 29th March 2017 on Wednesdays 5.30pm to 8.00pm. An intake and assessment interview will be conducted before commencing these groups.
