About the Program
South Pacific Private are the pioneers within Australia in the treatment of trauma and co-occurring mental health issues.
Our Life Skills Program is a foundational program for individuals who require extra support in learning tools to dealing with emotional dysregulation and interpersonal conflicts. We will provide you with solid skills to help you self-regulate and give you a better understanding of how trauma has impacted you mental health.
Clients will learn to manage their trauma symptoms by developing skills to address triggers, develop self –soothing techniques and explore their defense and maladaptive coping mechanisms by replacing them with more functional coping strategies.
The program is facilitated by skilled therapists that are trained in process orientated groups and are attuned to the interpersonal dynamics that arise within the group environment.
