Shark Cage

Shark Cage is an eight-week supportive and informative group program for women who have experienced domestic and family violence or sexual abuse in their lives. The program uses a five-step evidence-based framework developed by Melbourne psychologist, Ursula Benstead to help women interrupt patterns of abuse in their lives and challenge victim blaming.

In a safe and supportive environment, our highly skilled and accredited practitioners will support you to recognise and identify the characteristics of healthy relationships. You will learn about the impacts of trauma, how to manage strong emotions, develop assertiveness skills and build your sense of self-worth and empowerment. You will also create your personal treasure chest of tools to help you heal and create a new, strong and positive sense of yourself and your rights.
