Workshop Information

Family Violence Community Recovery © copyright

We Al-li 2011 – 2023

This workshop is a blend of skill development, personal learning and professional practice. It uses prescribed readings, learning through role-play, group process and discussion to develop increased understanding and skills for use both individually and in community development approaches to violence within families and communities.

It has within it an ecological approach to promoting community participation in addressing issues of violence within families and the community generally, through the development of an action plan to address issues of violence related trauma within families and communities.

About the artwork:

This painting portrays to me, that even though ‘recovery’ has to be done on a family and community level, it still has to be done on an individual level first. The fragmented pieces I have used illustrate the shattering of families. The spirit symbols in each corner represent the individual journeys and recovery of family members. The centre of this painting shows the family united.

Client Testimonial

I've heard a great review from the last men's and women's groups you held here in Ceduna a few months ago, with most of the people I work with in the community attending. They were so happy with the whole service & process that some of them had told me; “It was like it was the very first time that a program listened to them, heard their experiences in life and felt a sense of relief, they felt positive, and had aspirations of doing things to better their lives". I was thinking just from hearing that from the people in the community from a 2-day program is wonderful. KEEP UP THE FANTASTIC WORK YOUR PROGRAM IS DOING IN OUR COMMUNITIES.
