Stopping the Violence Program
The Stopping the Violence Program (STV) offers women an opportunity to address experiences of abuse from a client centred and strengths based perspective. Women self-refer to the program and will receive an intake appointment with an STV Counsellor. In this appointment, staff will address any safety concerns, provide additional resources and discuss what services Cythera has to offer.
PEACE PROGRAM (FORMERLY Children Who Witness Abuse Program)
The PEACE program for children and youth experiencing violence provides counselling support rooted in the needs of the individual with a focus on Prevention, Education, Advocacy, Counselling and Empowerment. Utilising art and play, participants will develop an appropriate understanding of abuse, learn conflict resolution skills, recognise their strengths, address safety and explore the foundations of healthy relationships.
Groups & Workshops
Our psycho-educational groups and workshops offer women opportunities for self-reflection and a deeper understanding of abuse and it's impacts. We offer both drop-in and closed groups, all of which are available to Cythera clients. In addition to groups offered to Cythera clients, we also do community based support and offer groups open to all community members as well.
