Alternatives to Violence

Freedom From Abuse In Relationships  (Now called making connections)

Deltassist is facilitating a group for women who have experienced partner abuse at some point of their lives. Living with abuse and violence can harm both physical and psychological health. Everyone has a right to a safe and healthy relationship that is free from violence and fear. Women will learn about the cycle of abuse, why abuse happens and the impact of abuse both on themselves and the children. They will learn healthier communication skills and self care techniques. Women who identify as LGBTQ2 are welcome.

Self esteem

In this group women participants will learn what self esteem is and how abuse impacts self esteem. They will learn about self assessment tools and about healthier thinking patterns using acceptance paradox. They will identify their own strengths and use these to enhance their self esteem.

Boundaries and Assertiveness

Women participants will have a deeper understanding for building boundaries, understanding assertiveness, and developing a healthier self worth. Sometimes being a people pleaser seems easier than being assertive. Women will recognize that they are worth way more than that and create an ability to say ‘no’ when they want to. The participants will learn a healthy style of conducting interpersonal relationships where they don’t have to give up on their own needs and still have respect for others’ needs.
