‘Discovering the Power in Me’ program is a two day workshop designed to help develop inner strength and resilience in people with spinal cord injuries (SCI). The program delivers twelve interactive units in small groups and is aimed at individuals with SCI, their loved ones, and carers. Accredited facilitators teach the concepts in powerful segments, with components that feature audience members who share experiences, stories and questions.
Discovering the Power in Me utilises principles of applied cognitive psychology to provide people with disabilities and their families with tools to re-assert control over their lives, to increase engagement in the community and improve wellbeing and mental health.
