A six week group programme designed for couples in conflict or where there is an imbalance of power.
The aims of the programme are to:
• begin to restore a healthy relationship
• improve communication and self management
Week 1. (Couples) – Exploring power and control issues in an intimate couple relationship
Week 2. (Couples) – Impact of unbalanced power on self, partner, children and other family members
Week 3. (Individuals with control issues) – Taking responsibility for communicating and negotiating differently
Week 4. (Individuals feeling controlled) – Being safe; beliefs, communication and behaviours
Week 5 (Couples) – Jointly managing a safety planning
Week 6. Keeping a safe balance for the long term
Once this group is established we are planning to run sessions on alternate Saturday mornings at the Perdiswell Young People’s Leisure Club, Droitwich Road, Worcester, at a cost of £300 per couple. A deposit of £50 per couple will be required to secure a place in the group. Individual assessments will be completed prior to the commencement of the group at an additional cost of £45 per couple.
