We provide individual counselling and group counselling to children (age 3-18). In our agency, a safe and confidential environment, they can work through their feelings that surface as a result of exposure to family violence. They learn about the types of abuse and express their feelings and thoughts about violence in order to understand that family violence is not their fault. Children will develop problem-solving skills and the ability to follow a safety plan.
We provide groups for children (age 1-1/2-5) and their caregivers. These groups help children to develop their communication skills and foster their interest in developmentally appropriate activities and increase their social contacts. Caregivers explore community resources, learn how to promote healthy family relationships, and become aware of cross-cultural differences in parenting. Our individual and group counselling services focus on facilitating communication between family members, and between families and other agencies and institutions.
