About the programme
The Hope2Recovery Programme is a 6 week programme for any adult that is experiencing / or has experienced domestic abuse and is their first step towards Recovery.
Each session will last for one hour and can be delivered by trained facilitators setting or online, enabling organisations to support as many people as possible.
The programme follows the Rock Pool Recovery Model and uses the principles of a trauma informed approach to enable participants to understand the dynamics of domestic abuse , why they have coped the way they have and how their parenting has been affected.
Aims of the Hope2Recovery Programme for participants
The overall aims of the programme are to develop sufficient, safety, trust and motivation in the individual to engage them, so they:
- Develop an understanding of the tactics perpetrators of domestic abuse and coercive control use
- Develop a better understanding of the difference between healthy / unhealthy and abusive relationships.
- Develop a better understanding of their parenting role and the challenge of being a nurturing parent while in an abusive relationship
- Consolidate this learning to enable future life plans to be based on the safety of themselves and their children
Aims for facilitators
- To inspire and motivate the workforce to adapt their interactions with people through awareness of trauma-informed practices
- For professionals to be familiar with the underpinning principles of the Hope2Recovery Programme
- For professionals to be able to use the Hope2Recovery Manual and Participants Journal to support Programme participants
- To have an increased understanding of coercive control
- To understand group dynamics and how to successfully facilitate groupwork for adults who have experienced domestic abuse
- To successfully facilitate groups either when delivered face to face or via an online setting
- To increase understanding of the impact of vicarious trauma on the workforce
Benefits of online delivery
The online Hope2Recovery Programme enables domestic abuse providers who are working with people that are or have experienced domestic abuse to respond to the increased demand for support due to the¬† pressures COVID-19 has brought.
Online delivery will enable providers to meet the increasing demand from those people:
- who are already on waiting lists for support and recovery programmes, cancelled due to COVID-19
- whose reactions to previous abuse are being triggered by the isolation and stress caused by the COVID-19 pandemic
- who are escaping from domestic abuse during the crisis
- It will also provide an unmet previous need of providing an option to those who live in rural areas, may have ability issues , or other cultural issues that prevent them from travelling or attending a group.
