Youth Trauma Counselling Program

Criminal behaviour has been linked to the experience of abuse and trauma in childhood. Our clinic is looking at this connection and how trauma therapy/counselling may help to reduce further crime and involvement in the criminal justice system among young men* aged 16-30. This program involves an intake and assessment session, 15 sessions of individual trauma therapy/counselling, as well as a post-program assessment session. We are offering these 15 weeks of therapy for free with full participation.
