Alternatives to Violence

Violence against women is not a private family issue. It is a community and public health issue affecting not only the abuser and his victim but everyone around them.

Alternatives to Violence – Victim Support

This program provides assistance primarily to women and children experiencing relationship violence.

Deltassist’s Alternatives To Violence program includes individual and group counselling for adult female victims of relationship violence and survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

Freedom From Abuse In Relationships  (FAIR)

Deltassist is facilitating a group for women who have experienced relationship abuse at some point of their lives. Living with abuse and violence can harm both physical and psychological health. Everyone has a right to a safe and healthy relationship that is free from violence and fear. Women will learn about the cycle of abuse, why abuse happens and the impact of abuse both on themselves and the children. They will learn healthier communication skills and self care techniques.

Self esteem

In this group women participants will learn what self esteem is and how abuse impacts self esteem. They will learn about self assessment tools and about healthier thinking patterns using acceptance paradox. They will identify their own strengths and use these to enhance their self esteem.

Boundaries and Assertiveness

Women participants will have a deeper understanding for building boundaries, understanding assertiveness, and developing a healthier self worth. Sometimes being a people pleaser seems easier than being assertive. Women will recognize that they are worth way more than that and create an ability to say ‘no’ when they want to. The participants will learn a healthy style of conducting interpersonal relationships where they don’t have to give up on their own needs and still have respect for others’ needs.
