You must have completed the 3 day facilitator training to access this virtual training.
The Community Group model was originally developed in Canada. AVA has the endorsement of the Canadian authors to adapt and roll out the model in the UK.
The model is based around a programme of sessions for children aged 4 -21 (the children are divided into age-specific groups) which run for two hours a week over a twelve-week period.
The programme addresses the following core issues
- validation of the children’s experiences
- understanding abuse
- reducing self-blame
- safety planning
- managing appropriate and inappropriate expressions of emotion
- the mother-child relationship.
The programme offers concurrent group sessions for the children’s mothers. They are supported to understand how the violence has impacted on their child and how best to help them through the healing process.
