The support groupworks are organized to provide an opportunity for single parents to share their experiences and feelings associated with the death, divorce or desertion. The discussion topics in the support groups are relevant to the recovery from the pain of the losses and other parenting issues arising out of the death, divorce or desertion. These group works are mainly facilitated by the social workers.
Objectives of the support groupworks:
1. To create opportunity and safe environment for the single parent to get in touch with the feelings that are associated to their losses due to death, separation or divorce.
2. To acquire the self-confidence and build up the self esteem to cope as a single parent through the emotional and moral support given among members in the sharing.
3. To learn problem solving skills to face and deal with challenges ahead as a single parent.
Types of Support Groupworks available:
Groupwork for the Unwed (English)
Groupwork for the Divorced (Mandarin)
Groupwork for the Widowed (Mandarin)
