Dads On A Journey Support Group

We want to give everyone the opportunity to succeed as parents, hence this program ‘Dads on a Journey’, which is for Dads who are not quite ready to work collaboratively and safely with the child’s other parent for whatever reason. The Program is linked to our ‘Baby Bubbles’ © ‘Teen Bubbles’ © and ‘Bubbles for Parents’ © programs.

Dads On A Journey gives the participants the opportunity to reflect on the importance they have in their children’s lives and helping to remove the stress of working with the other parent.

The framework of this work draws from but is not limited to;

  • Bowlby’s Attachment Theory
  • The Circle of Security, (Kent Hoffman, Glen Cooper and Bert Powell, 2001)
  • Glasser’s ‘Choice Theory’ (Choice Theory; A New Psychology of Personal Freedom, 1998)
  • The Safe and Together Model (David Mandel, 2001)

Starting from birth and continuing throughout our lives, each person places significant role models, possessions and systems of belief (e.g: religion, cultural values, icons, etc.) into a mostly unconscious framework.

This program, in a group setting, is about unpacking, reflecting and creating a new safer journey which will help prevent and hopefully alleviate ‘sink holes’ along the journey which will lead to healthier, happier and safer outcomes for Dads and Kids alike.

One of our most favourite analogies over the years has been the saying that;

‘Out of acorns, mighty oak trees grow”.

Without a solid, secure base on which to spread and grow it’s roots, the tree would topple. Without nurturing and keeping it sage it would not grow. But with both, it grows strength, and we belief, Wisdom.

So, without further ado, let’s pack the cases, load the car, put on the seatbelt and enjoy the journey.

Dads On A Journey is a group setting, is free and ongoing.
