Children who have Experienced/Witnessed Violence

This program aims at working with children who have either experienced or witnessed violence.  The philosophy of the program recognizes that parent/child is not a cause of violence and abuse directed at children and that in a parent/child relationship, children do not instigate or cause violence or abuse themselves.  With parental/guardian consent, children can receive counselling individually, without a parent being present in the session.  The goals of counselling are to help manage the effects of abuse, increase coping capacities and develop strategies for managing on a daily basis.
