The Recovery Toolkit

The Recovery Toolkit is a 12 week course, which aims to provide you with all the knowledge you need to recover from the effects of living with domestic abuse.

It is a useful follow on from the Freedom Programme and is designed for women who have left an abusive partner. Programmes will run continuously depending on the number of referrals but each programme will have a cut-off point after two weeks after which new referrals will automaticaaly be placed on the next programme.

Different sessions evaluate:

  • How your thoughts affect the way you feel
  • How to increase your self esteem
  • Understanding Power and Control in an abusive relationship
  • Boundaries and Trust: protecting ourselves and those we love
  • Understanding your own anger

The individuals own strengths, resources and coping skills are reinforced contributing to their own health and wellness on a long term basis.

The course uses group exercises to promote positivity, relaxation and calm anxiety. These methods then empower women to take more control of their lives by setting goals and identifying positive changes within themselves.

Only women who are no longer living with an abusive partner may access this programme. Otherwise, referrals can be made by telephoning or emailing RSACC directly.
