Family Recovery Toolkit
In September 2017 and January 2018 Bounce Back 4 Kids will be running Family Recovery Toolkit courses for adults and young people in Bracknell. This support programme is for young people and their parent affected by domestic abuse and is designed to raise self-esteem and provide an opportunity to explore and express their feelings in a safe therapeutic way. Bounce Back 4 Kids staff have been trained by Rock Pool to provide this training.
The Young People Recovery Toolkit is suitable for any young person (aged 11-14) that has witnessed or experienced domestic abuse and is able to take part in a group.
Sessions for the Young People Recovery Toolkit are interactive and fun. The topics include:
- Why am I here?
- Self-esteem – what is it?
- Who’s my family?
- Talking positive
- Ways to handle difficult emotions without getting into trouble
- Healthy relationships and trust
The aims are to help young people come to terms with their experiences and to develop positive lifestyle and coping strategies.
The Adult Domestic Abuse Recovery Toolkit aims enable the adult to better understand and deal with their previous experiences. Their strengths, resources and coping skills and resilience are reinforced contributing to their own health and wellness on a long-term basis.
