Separate Anger Management groups are provided for men and women. In these small groups (max 10) facilitated by experienced group counsellors, individuals learn different strategies to deal with stressful situations. A Cognitive Behavioral approach is used to examine and reflect upon individual’s emotions, thoughts and behaviors. These groups also address the tendencies that originate in childhood but use a hopeful and non-judgemental model of change to empower the participants to recognize their ability to change how they think about and react to the many stressors in their lives.
Both individual and group counselling is available for children who have lived in homes or situations that resulted in their being witness to interpersonal violence.
Separate 12 week programs are offered to men and women who are legally mandated to attend because of intimate partner violence. This is an open group for men and a scheduled group for women. The curriculum is defined by the Ministry of the Attorney General and is delivered by experienced co facilitators who use a variety of tools to make the sessions powerful and meaningful to the participants.
