Changes I is South Pacific Private’s signature workshop and is what sets us apart from other treatment centres in the country.
The Changes I Program is a key part of our inpatient program and is now also offered as a standalone workshop for individuals who are in recovery and wanting to dive deeper. This Trauma-informed program uses Pia Mellody’s Model of Developmental Immaturity and is an experiential process group which incorperates group therapy, education and process work. It is facilitated by our renowned, formally trained clinicians.
In a safe and compassionate environment you will get the opportunity to explore childhood relational trauma, to process, honour and release the painful feelings that are holding you back from embracing your full potential and moving forward in your recovery
