The Family Wellbeing Program: Empowerment research

  • Description
    The Family Wellbeing Program was developed in the early 1990s by a group of Indigenous leaders in Adelaide who had been affected by the Stolen Generations. The 150-hour program is enriched with material from complementary philosophies and empowerment principles and seeks to empower participants through personal transformation that involves harmonising physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of life and applying this to practical, day-to-day living. Program content is delivered in group settings through five 30-hour stages.
