The Recovery Toolkit is a 12-week programme for women who have experienced domestic abuse. It is a closed group programme and therefore participants are expected to attend sessions every week. FCWA provides a safe setting for women to maximise their own potential. Women who attend the group must have left their abusive relationship.
The course aims to provide you with all the knowledge that you will need to recover from the effects of living with domestic abuse. This should help to assist you to build confidence, develop effective coping strategies, reduce isolation and improve your general wellbeing. The course uses group exercises to promote positivity, relaxation and calm anxiety.
FCWA asks that clients wanting to participate in the course attend the community drop-in sessions in preparation where possible. FCWA recognises that the recovery from abuse is an individual journey and by attending the drop-in sessions you will develop a better understanding of whether you are ready to attend the programme.
The course is delivered by accredited Recovery Toolkit trainers.
Different sessions evaluate:
• How your thoughts affect the way you feel
• How to increase your self esteem
• Understanding power and control in an abusive relationship
• Boundaries and trust: protecting ourselves and those we love
• Understanding your own anger
