Celebrate resilience through supportive workshops

WOMEN's workshops to celebrate their resilience in the face of domestic and family violence (D&FV) are being held in Brisbane during Domestic Violence Awareness month.

The two workshops are open to women who have experienced or are at risk of D&FV which includes elder abuse.

Wynnum Manly Community Centre's (WMCC) Dr Kate Costigan is organising them. "I have been running these worksops for many years including with indigenous women," Kate said.

The centre provides professional counselling, education and support to the local community as well as workshops for women at risk.

The WOW: Celebrating Resilience workshops will provide information and resources on D&FV including elder abuse, and healthy relationships. They will also celebrate women, their strengths and abilities through a range of art forms. No skill is required to participate.

The free workshops (gold coin donation for those who earn a salary) are being held from 9.30am to 2.30pm on May 18 at the Redlands Centre for Women and on May 23 at the WMCC.

Please phone Dr Kate Costigan on 0400 000 968 or email her at kcostiga@gmail.com/ to book a place or for more information.
