Aboriginal Positive Lifestyle Program

This program is all about a person going on a journey of self-discovery. It is evidence based and has been specifically designed to accommodate the culture of Indigenous people in order to enhance self-awareness and gain a better understanding of personal life strengths. The Program consists of 8 sessions that allow the individual to grow in their own self-awareness and implement skills that will further enhance their own life. Alongside a trained facilitator everyday issues are explored within a cultural context and the individual is able to reflect upon their own experiences in relation to: 

  • Knowing and respecting yourself 
  • Making decisions and keeping safe 
  • Anger 
  • Feeling down and lonely 
  • Getting on with others 
  • Sorry business 
  • Problem solving and conflict resolution 
  • Making dreams real 

The material itself allows participants to grow and learn by applying learnt strengths and skills to present and future situations, learn to identify  anger, stress, grief and loss and how to view these life circumstances in a more positive way.
