Support group- Every Tuesday 10am -noon
The experience of physical, emotional, sexual, economic and / or verbal abuse causes the abused person to feel alone. We organize support groups where people can talk without fear or distrust, knowing that listeners have gone through the same suffering. All discussions are strictly confidential.
Confidentiality is one of the most important rules of support groups. Before each group starts, emphasis is given on avoiding disclosure of what is said in the group, to secure the integrity of the participants. Certified staff in domestic violence coordinate these groups, which are one of the most powerful strategies for the survivors, going forward to a better life.
