For Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people, or carers/partner of ATSI people (child or adult).

Held on the second and fourth Monday of the month during school terms

The Be SMART Program has been designed to assist people who are affected
by the behaviour of someone close to them. The program aims to help
participants develop more effective coping strategies and find a greater sense
of fulfilment.

With so much time and energy focused on the problems of the other person,
it can be easy to lose sight of what is important in your own life. Rather than
focusing on the other person, the program invites participants to spend some
time concentrating on themselves and their goals, an area they may have been
neglecting for some time. It also includes looking at some of their habitual
responses to the other person and exploring whether these are helpful or not.
The group explores ways that participants can look after themselves
better, even in difficult and stressful circumstances, and promote healthier
relationships with other people.

AIMS OF THE PROGRAM INCLUDE:
• Motivation to change
• Self care & self rewards
• Assertive communication
• Safety & support
• Problem solving
• Coping skills

Facilitated by Aboriginal workers who have extensive experience and training.
