This is an individual PAR counselling program for men and women who have been violent or have been physically or verbally abusive towards a spouse/partner. The purpose of domestic violence intervention counseling is to help stop abusive and controlling behaviours. Participants are engaged in self-exploration and structured exercises to help them examine their beliefs and behaviours. They learn more appropriate ways to resolve family conflict; approaches that do not involve violence or threats. When issues related to substance abuse or mental health are identified as intersecting with intimate partner violence they are addressed through the course counselling sessions. Additional referrals for treatment and community supports may be provided.
