Family Works

The Family Works Programme is a four-day non-residential programme offered by Life Works designed to enable participants to establish a mutually supportive family whilst developing the requisite tools for ongoing growth and development. This service can be preformed in conjunction with an intervention or as a stand alone service. 

The programme addresses the trans-generational cycles of dysfunction and addiction that affect many families. Staffed by our expert clinicians, families are provided with a safe and nurturing environment to overcome the problems that arise from broken lines of communication.

The Family Works Programme combines three elements:

Education

Through a series of presentations and lectures, participants will learn about family dynamics and systems. During this process they begin to identify the detrimental elements that exist within their own families and gain knowledge of new ways to resolve them.

Group Work

Families are supported in a non-blaming way through self disclosure and sharing, to facilitate the healing of emotional pain. The re-examining of past experiences become resources for the future instead of problems from the past. The power, safety and forgiveness found in group work coupled with dynamic therapeutic techniques provide foundational and lasting benefits for each individual and as a consequence for the whole family.

Wrap-up

The final stage of the programme allows for review and consolidation; armed with new communication and coping skills, families are advised on how to implement all they have learnt to ensure continued positive changes. Our aim is to help families develop satisfying, loving and healthy relationships for the future.

The Family Works Programme has been developed for those who wish to:

  • Develop healthy ways of communicating feelings and needs
  • Understand, set and maintain healthy boundaries 
  • Develop or renew intimacy in family relationships 
  • Heal debilitating shame; nurturing the individual within the family 
  • Overcome past pain that impedes family fulfilment

The Life Works Family Works Programme is an effective growth process for families negatively impacted by poor communication, co-dependency, addiction, compulsivity, trauma or depression.

 Family Works is only a portion of the treatmentes offered by Life Works. Our rehabilitation centre also has a number of residential treatment options to help people struggling withn a number of addictions and other disorders. These include:
