The Survivors of Violence Counselling Program is designed to provide counselling support and assistance to clients (women and men) of the Employment Program of British Columbia who are survivors of violence and abuse. Our team provides treatment that is supported by research. Clients are provided with tools and strategies to help manage and overcome the impacts of abuse to assist in preparing to return to work. Our counsellors work with clients to develop personalized, goal-focused treatment plans that help clients better understand their problems and develop skills that help them achieve lasting, positive change. Clients may also participate in workshops that focus on recognizing, understanding, and overcoming the effects of abuse and/or violence.
To be eligible for this program, clients must be unemployed and involved with an Employment Program of British Columbia/WorkBC centre. Individual eligibility is determined through the Employment Program of British Columbia/WorkBC centre.
The Survivors of Violence Counselling Program is offered in Newton, Langley, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Richmond.
