Fresh Start is for Western Australian women in abusive relationships.
Relationships are as unique as the individuals who enter into them. Just as there is no ‘ideal’ way to live your life, there is no single formula for a successful relationship. While all relationships go through challenging times, it can be difficult to know if you are going through a rough patch or if there is a pattern of behaviour that is unhealthy and physically or emotionally damaging to you and your children.
It is critical for you to understand when an unhealthy relationship crosses the line and becomes family violence. This book identifies the characteristics of family violence and how it might impact you and your children.
By working through this easy to understand book, you can start to make informed decisions about your relationship and your future while ensuring that you and your children are safe.
It covers a range of practical information on the process of leaving a violent relationship, where you can go for support, and what happens after you leave. Fresh Start also provides advice on moving on with your life.
Fresh Start is published by Patricia Giles Centre for Non-Violence. Our mission is to build and empower families and communities to live free from gender-based violence. There is more information on our services on our website.
