Building Stronger Families
Building Stronger Families is a program for Arabic-speaking migrant men aged over 18 who are new (0-5 years) to Australia. It is a free program run by Arabic-speaking facilitators.
Building Stronger Families is a 16-week group program that helps you to build family connections that are strong, respectful and caring during weekly group sessions for Arabic-speaking men who are new to Australia.
Group facilitators provide information, create discussion, allow for self-reflection, goal setting and learning new skills. Participants experience a positive, practical approach that builds on strengths within themselves and in their relationships. Participating in a group program is an effective way to gain the confidence to turn negative habits and cycles into positive ones, manage strong emotions constructively and create the future you want.
This program seeks to teach men:
- How to build family connections that are strong, respectful and caring
- To better understand the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that impact relationships
- About the dynamics of power and control in families and of relationships between men and women in Australia
Modality: Face to face. Weekly group sessions, of 8-12 participants.
