The Bright Futures group work program is a therapeutic creative arts group that provides space away from some of the more stressful times that children may have encountered through their experience of family violence and/or homelessness. Therapeutic methods such as art, drama, games and small group discussions are used to create an atmosphere that feels safe and relaxed. Groups explore specific issues faced by participants including family dynamics, understanding and managing strong emotions, looking after oneself, identifying hopes and dreams and strengths.

The goals of the program include:

  • increasing positive peer interaction
  • enhancing and building confidence and self-esteem
  • reducing challenging behavioural issues
  • alleviating anxiety and stress related tension
  • reducing Isolation.

The groups cater for children between 0-18 years.

For more information about the therapeutic group work, see the current northern region group work calendar. For further information or possible group work partnerships please contact Bright Futures.
