About the Program

What About Me? has been developed to support primary school aged children who have experienced separation; high conflict; family violence and/or reside with only one of their parent’s. The program aims to address the impact of separation and parental conflict and provides support through activity based play to children in a safe environment.

Is the program for my child?

What About Me? is available for all primary school aged children who have experienced family separation.

How does the program work?

Our group facilitators deliver psychoeducation through art therapy, child-centred play therapy, and peer supported group therapy. Group facilitators are specialised and experienced practitioners in the family and child welfare space. The group is child-focused and facilitators work within the best interests of the child and the child safe standards frameworks.

Groups run each school term, 4:30pm – 6:00pm after school at locations in Frankston and Sandringham.

What will my child learn?
