The program delivers Psychoeducation Groups and Wellness Workshops. Clients may enroll in one or both. See details below:

Psychoeducation Groups

Each group includes 5 couples who meet with a facilitator 1-2 times a week, for a total of 6 sessions (60 minutes per session). This option requires couples to be on a waitlist; couples will be contacted once a group is available.

Wellness Workshops

Open to couples and their support person(s) 1-2 times a month. Each workshop is 60 minutes long and can be online or in-person. Please visit the Upcoming Events section for the workshop dates.


What is domestic violence?

Domestic violence includes emotional, physical, and sexual abuse between people in intimate relationships. The aggressive or violent behaviour leads to unhealthy relationships in couples.
