Abuse Service

Program Description

The intake will consist of gathering basic information and providing client with information on the therapeutic groups, individual counselling, or women's support groups. At that time, individuals will be registered to attend six bi-weekly educational workshops. If an individual does not feel comfortable in participating in a group, they will then meet individually with our therapist who will go through the information with them. Individuals who attend the educational workshops are not expected to share their stories at any given time. When completing the educational workshops, individuals will then have the option to begin individual counselling. Individuals who feel satisfied with the information given during the workshops can choose to not engage in individual counselling. We understand that every individual has different needs and will accommodate individuals the best we can. For example, an individual may access court support services during the course of the workshops.
