Opening the Doors is a support group for women who have experienced family violence in a relationship and would like to join with other women to express themselves as well as regain their sense of self through learning, sharing, connecting and creating.
The group provides opportunities for participants to talk about their experience, learn from others, gain practical resources, understand the effects of family violence on women and children, and strengthen self-esteem.
Opening the Doors also involves hands-on activities that heal trauma through the body, mind, story and art.
The next program will commence on Thursday 26 July and run for eight weeks.
For more information and to discuss if this program is right for you, contact our friendly staff by calling (03) 8311 9222 or visiting www.rav.org.au/OpeningDoors
“(I found it useful) finding other women who have experienced the same or similar. Gaining the confidence to not feel ashamed, being able to identify trigger points. Feeling a connection with others and not feeling judged or isolated.” - Opening the Doors participant.
