Nothing! The program is free.
After registering your interest, via phone or email (see below), a member of our research team will send you an email, requesting you to fill in an online questionnaire before the group commences. The information you provide helps us to check on your eligibility for the program. Once complete, we will tell you if you meet the eligibility criteria.
In order to check how you are going and if the program is helpful, you will also be asked to fill in some surveys and other measures throughout the program and 2 months after it finishes.
The workshops will be conducted at the University of Queensland, St Lucia.
Groups will start in June 2015 and will continue throughout 2015.
The first 4 sessions of the workshop will take place at the same time each week, followed by the final session one month later (at the same time).
