Natalie has been developing resources for women for many years. Recently she has developed the Own My Life course, which is an innovative, creative and educational 12-week course for women. It supports women in regaining ownership of their lives when they have subjected to abuse or violence by partner. This is done through short videos, structured discussions, group and individual activities, and a comprehensive learning journal.
It uses multimedia content to explain complex concepts about trauma and abuse in easy to understand video clips, along with videos which evidence how popular culture reinforces or perpetuates sexism, rape culture, violence, misogyny, disrespect in relationships and abusive behaviour. The Own My Story Journal provides women with space for reflective practice, and includes all the information provided throughout the course. This becomes an ongoing resource for women after the course has finished.
