Many women who have been in abusive relationship struggle to deal with conflict. Some struggles to “speak-up” others are worried about their “rage exploding”.
Many people can cope day to day, but become upset when dealing with authority figures and others struggle with “difficult people and conversations”. If you struggle to resolve issues this could be the class for you – being assertive is helpful for the whole family!
SPARK is again able to offer its SPECIAL PARENTING CLASS for parents who have lost custody or are threatened with loss of custody of their children.
These SPARK Classes are all being taught by Kath Silard OAM (our Director)
If you wish to participate in any of these classes please ring SPARK (8212 3255) to enrol. Please inform us if you will need child-care.
SPARK is able to offer free creche facilities to parents.
Please note – Each child needs to have a labelled bag and food supplied. We would prefer parents to come 15 – 20 minutes prior to class commencement.
Each class has been requested and is held in a friendly atmosphere at SPARK. (Please register your children at least one week prior to class commencing)
Please note – If you earn less than $40,000 p.a. then you can still qualify for the low income fees.
