What is Own My Life?
An innovative and creative new education programme, designed to enable women to regain ownership of their lives after abuse.
The course helps women make sense of what has been done to them, discover their strengths and develop the skills to move forward.
Initially run online, Cyfannol Women’s Aid’s Own My Life groups will provide a safe space for women to meet together to complete the course.
Who is it for?
The course is suitable for women who are dealing with a:
- Difficult relationship.
- Nightmare ex-partner.
- Horrible break up.
- Controlling partner or ex.
To attend an online course, women must have separated (and living separately from) the partner who hurt them.
Course Delivery & Content
The course aims to educate and empower women who have been subjected to abuse to regain ownership of their own lives.
The 12-week programme is designed to be interactive, with lots of short videos, quizzes, and discussion. The course uses multimedia content to explain complex concepts about trauma and abuse in easy-to-understand video clips, along with videos that explore themes such as disrespect in relationships, abusive behaviour, sexism and misogyny.
The course explores how women can regain ownership of our lives including owning our mind, body, choices, relationships, world, feelings.
The Own My Story Journal provides women with space for reflective practice, and includes all the information provided throughout the course. This becomes an ongoing resource for women after the course has finished.
