The Survivor Recovery Programme is a transformational journey for women who have been victims of domestic violence. It is a programme that helps them to heal and move on from their past so that they can create a bright future for themselves.
With the right support, it is possible to rebuild a life free from fear and violence. No one should have to suffer in silence. Domestic abuse is a serious issue that can have a lasting impact and this course provides information, tools and resources to help you.
This course is perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about how to thrive and rebuild their life after experiencing domestic abuse.
The course is split into the following sections:
Section 1: Introduction
This section takes look at what the course is about and how it can help you. Maureen Bailey, founder, explains the vision for the course and how you can work through it using the workbook.
Section 2: The 7 Pillars of Recovery
The pillars of recovery help to develop the right mindset to assist with recovering and rebuilding. Each pillar is dedicated to helping you develop a healthy relationship with yourself, others and the world around you.
Section 3: What is Domestic Abuse?
This section goes through the power and control wheel. Though most often thought of as physical abuse, domestic abuse can also take the form of emotional abuse, financial abuse, sexual abuse and other types.
Section 4: The Power and Control Wheel
The Power and Control Wheel is a helpful tool for understanding the different ways that abusers try to control their victims. The wheel has eight sections, each of which represents a different form of abuse.
Section 5: Changes in the Law
It’s important to know the law relating to domestic abuse and the recent Domestic Abuse Act 2021 introduces several changes. This section also goes through other crimes related to domestic abuse and violence.
Section 6: Healthy Relationships
This section goes through the Equality Wheel to outline aspects of a healthy relationship. When a relationship is healthy it is built on trust, mutual respect, and communication. When all three of these components are present, people can navigate even the most difficult challenges with grace and understanding.
Section 7: Assertiveness and Boundaries
Assertiveness means having a voice and not being afraid of using it. This section will explore ways to stand up for yourself while still respecting others. You’ll learn how to communicate clearly and confidently, set boundaries, and say “no” when needed.
Section 8: Affirmations
Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to overcome challenges and achieve your goals. When faced with adversity, it can be difficult to maintain a positive outlook. After experiencing difficult moments you may suffer from low self-esteem and self-doubt..
Section 9: Self-Care and Meditations
After the difficult experiences that you have had, it’s important to take care of yourself both physically and emotionally. What you have been through can take a toll on your mind, body and spirit – damaging your self-esteem, and it may be hard to feel worthy of love and respect. This section contains meditations to help you calm the mind.
Section 10: Now what – steps to move forward
It is possible to rebuild your life and thrive, by taking time to rediscover yourself and dedicating to heal from what you have faced at your own pace. We use each of the 8 pillars of recovery to help you build a personalised plan for yourself.
