This grant supports the creation and implementation of a new program within the Children Exposed to Violence Program. Called Growing Together, the new program offers a collaborative counselling approach for mothers and children who are rebuilding their lives following violence and abuse. Through 10 counselling sessions, the program builds parental skills and improves the parent/child relationship, while the child attends therapy sessions. Each session provides parenting strategies that parents can practice between appointments. Growing Together is tailored to the needs of rural mothers and children in the region.
