Group Workshops

Taking Charge

Gain confidence in managing life’s ups-and-downs, communicating effectively, establishing healthy boundaries and building self-esteem. This weekly workshop takes a group on a journey of self-discovery, building on current strengths and introducing coping strategies. Sessions are tailored to the group’s common purpose and agreement for working together. Participants receive a certificate, the opportunity to review their goals and discuss “next steps” at the close of the program.

Next Steps

This workshop provides the next steps towards increased personal independence and self-reliance. A stand-alone weekly group, it is also ideally timed and suited to those who have participated in Taking Charge. Centering less on facilitation, and more on outside speakers and connections with the community, Next Steps makes you more familiar with and confident in accessing community resources.

Toolbox 4 Work

When you’re ready to consider employment, this group workshop will give you the support you need to prepare for the workforce or voluntary work. We recognise that this is an individual choice, and must be a personal journey towards your specific goals and aspirations. There is no pressure to find work through the program but if that is your goal the EmploymentWorks! team may also be able to assist you.
