Children Exposed to Interpersonal Violence Program
Offered in partnership with the Ministry of Justice.
This program offers prevention, intervention, and therapy in the form of counselling, group support and educational presentations. This program is for children and youth who are, or have been, exposed to violence which may include: bullying, dating violence, sibling violence, or family violence. The program is aimed at providing children, youth, and their families with the knowledge and skills to prevent violence and to address the immediate and long term effects of violence.
This group's goals are to:
- Give children a safe space to express their feelings
- Teach positive coping skills
- Build upon self-esteem
- Strengthen interpersonal communication.
Relationships That Rock
This group explores dating relationships, those with parents, friends, teachers, bosses, etc. We will discuss the differences between healthy and unhealthy relationships and identify various forms of violence. Participants will look at how self-esteem, self-image, personal boundaries and feelings are linked to our relationships. The group will learn effective communication, conflict resolution skills and how to identify an appropriate support system.
Group content is always modified to be age appropriate.
