Women’s Centre is offering a new parenting group for survivors of DV

We are so pleased to announce that we have begun a new therapeutic group for women at The St. John’s Women’s Centre.

Helping Children Thrive supports mothers leaving domestic violence become stronger and more effective parents.  This 12 week skill based group  helps mothers understand how domestic violence has undermined their parenting and offers alternatives skills and strategies in a safe and supportive environment. Through strengthening the skill set of mothers after abuse we hope to strengthen families and stop the cycle of intergenerational violence.

Helping Children Thrive is based on the work  of Linda Cunningham  from the Centre for Children and Families in the Justice System – Helping Children Thrive: Supporting Woman Abuse Survivors as Mothers.

The group is free and open to all women in the community. Childcare and transportation stipends are  available. For more information please contact Sheila at The Women’s Centre 709-753-0220 or email Sheila@sjwomenscentre.ca
