Children are sensitive to trauma, family violence and other issues. We support children by connecting them with other young people who share similar experiences.

Supporting kids

Children are highly sensitive, and can be affected by traumatic childhood events later in life. It’s important to give them the support needed to overcome personal challenges that arise during disruptive times such as separation or divorce.

Family Life provides children’s support groups that can help your child better manage their emotions. Whether it’s anxiety, loss of confidence or communication skills, our group sessions provide a safe environment with our trained practitioners for your child to talk to other kids and reassure them that they are not alone. Group formats vary, with activities such as art therapy or dialogue via puppets, all designed to assist children to develop strategies for coping with stressful situations and improving your child’s self-confidence.

Family Life runs different groups throughout the term and during school holidays. The best way to find out about these programs is to contact us on (03) 8599 5433 or send through an email to info@familylife.com.au.
