A group for individuals who have been abusive to their partners.
The program is for individuals who have been mandated by the Court to attend the PAR program in response to a criminal charge involving domestic violence.
Prior to participation in the group program individuals attend an intake meeting. During the intake meeting individuals will meet with a group facilitator to discuss their suitability for the program and to determine their fee.
The group program is 12 weekly two-hour sessions.
The group sessions are led by a male and female counselling team who discuss with the participants issues related to domestic violence and provide the opportunity for participants to learn non-abusive ways of behaving.
Victim/partners are also contacted through the program.
