NEW PROGRAM – Strong Moms, Safe Kids – is a group program for mothers who have experienced domestic violence and children who have witnessed abuse in their homes. The group is designed to provide mothers with the knowledge and skills to help their children heal from the experience of witnessing abuse. Due to the stressful nature of living in an abusive environment, mothers may experience difficulty being present and responsive to their children’s needs. Strong Moms, Safe Kids helps mothers to understand trauma through a child’s perspective and provides them with the tools to support their children through the healing process.
Women who are not currently living with the abusive partner, and who have children between the ages of 4 and up (4+) are welcome to register. The program is free of charge and will be run on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm for five weeks from October 13th to November 10th at the Skookum Jim Friendship Centre. Dinner will be provided and transportation can be arranged as needed.
