The Connection, Strength and Recovery Program supports victim-survivors to recover from the trauma and impacts of domestic and family violence. It helps victim-survivors understand their experience and rebuild their lives through reconnection with their families and the broader community, and actively supports their safety through creating safety plans.
The recovery model of intervention aims to build victim-survivors’ resilience, wellbeing, individualised supports and access to recovery services. This provides a protective factor against potential future experiences of domestic and/or family violence. The ideal of the program is for victim-survivors to feel psychologically and physically safer at program exit.
Case management periods are typically around 6 to 12 weeks with intensive one-on-one engagement. The current program model is a pilot and for this reason, referrals to the program are limited to victim-survivors being referred by a South Australian specialist Domestic and Family Violence service.
The program is suitable for victim-survivors who are not experiencing a crisis. Ideally, victim-survivors who are moving on from a Domestic and Family Violence case management service, including those in supportive or transitional housing, are suited to the program.
