South Pacific Private are the pioneers in the treatment of trauma and co-occurring addiction and mental health issues.
Changes II is South Pacific Private’s follow-up bespoke workshop to their signature workshop Changes I. This trauma-informed program assists clients to examine unresolved trauma and how they relate to current concerns through Pia Mellody’s Model of Developmental Immaturity. This occurs through exploring an individual’s current issues in the context of underlying developmental trauma – it is a continuation of the deep and transformative work completed in the Changes I Program.
The Changes II Program is facilitated by our renowned and exclusively-trained clinicians. This unique program has been designed for participants to learn how to manage present-day relational difficulties, behaviours and explore the underlying causes that have fuelled addictions and mental health conditions.
