Real Talk - Carers NT & Safe In Oz Workshop 17 -18th May 2018

Real Talk - A Guide for Carers of People with Self Destructive Behaviours

SAFE in Oz in partnership with Carers NT will be presenting a two day workshop in May.  The program "Real Talk" is a program of hope and support for carers, families and friends.

This program is extremely effective as a support program for carers, family and friends whilst the Consumer Program is running and throughout the recovery process. The overall aim is that individuals who attend this workshop, continue to be a support group for each other and open it to the wider community.

Day One – How It Begins

  • What is a self-destructive behaviour?
  • What are the risk factors?
  • Why keep doing it?
  • What are the triggers?

Day Two – Understanding The Act

  • What is the response to a trigger?
  • What is in their head space?
  • Hope, help, support and time!
  • How can I help?
