VICTIM/SURVIVOR INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING AND GROUP THERAPY
Counseling is provided for those who have experienced domestic violence in all forms, including physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. Survivors can expect confidential services that focus on safety, support, and empowerment. Both individual and group counseling are available to assist survivors in healing from the trauma of domestic violence.
CHILD AND ADOLESCENT COUNSELING
Counseling provides a safe environment for children and adolescents to share the effects that domestic violence has or is currently having on their lives. Counseling focuses on learning ways to stay safe and understanding that the child is not responsible for the violence.
Play therapy and sand play therapy is used by trained professionals with children too young to verbalize their feelings.
ADOLESCENT INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING AND GROUP THERAPY
Besides counseling for adolescents who are experiencing domestic violence in their home lives , Safe Nest offers counseling for teens who are experiencing violence in a dating relationship or for teens perpetrating dating violence. Both individual and group sessions are available.
Safe Nest offers 26- and 52-week programs for male and female domestic violence offenders. Groups are open to both voluntary and court-ordered participants. The state-certified group counseling program has been developed to encourage, confront, and support abusers with making change in their lives. Male and female co-facilitators specializing in domestic violence issues work with perpetrators on topics that include responsibility and accountability, behaviors and choices, belief systems about male/female family roles, the effects of abuse, and alternatives to battering.
COURT-ORDERED ADOLESCENT COUNSELING
The Court-Ordered Adolescent Group was developed for teens who are or have been abusive toward family members or dating partners. This group focuses on several topics including- defining power and violence, exploring anger, alternatives to violence, choices and responsibility, personal rights, power and control versus equality, healthy dating relationships, gender role socialization and societal pressure, and stress mechanisms.
