The Shark Cage

A program to empower young women who have experienced abuse and violence

Age Group: 17 - 24 years

6 Week Program
Mondays During Term 1 2024

Time: 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Date Commencing: Monday 12th February  

One3One Youth Hub is excited to bring back Shark Cage for Term 3 – this valuable evidence-based program supports and empowers young women who have experienced abuse and violence to explore common types of abuse that women experience and how this abuse relates to violations in human rights. This program is relevant for young women who have experienced more than one instance of abuse in their lives and may have begun to internalise social messages of victim-blaming. 


The framework was developed by Melbourne psychologist, Ursula Benstead, to provide an accessible explanation for re-victimisation in girls and women that does not blame the victim. It is based on 25 years of clinical experience with girls and women who have experienced abuse and violence. The framework is built on a metaphor based on human rights.
