S.T.O.P. Stop Taking It Out on Your Partner Domestic Violence Prevention Program

Community Bridge is pleased to offer the S.T.O.P. Program in partnership with the Northern John Howard Society of BC in March 2017.

STOP is a group domestic violence prevention program designed for "men who use violence, physical, psychological, sexual, and/or controlling behaviours within their intimate relationships". The course is for adult men, or men under the age of 19 who are living an adult lifestyle. 

The program will be offered to men who have not yet been charged or convicted of assault. However, the men must acknowledge abusive behaviours in their relationships and want to make changes. The men's partners may also take part in the program - participating separately from the men, but learning the same knowledge and skills, which contributes to the program's success.

STOP is composed of 12 - two hour sessions co-facilitated by one male and one female counsellor to model respectful relationships. 

Men’s Group - The men's weekly sessions will start on Thursday, March 9th, 2017 from 6:00 - 8:00 PM at Community Bridge.

Women’s Group - The men’s partners may also take part in the program, participating separately from the men, but learning the same knowledge and skills. The women's weekly sessions will start on Monday, March 6th, 2017 from 6:00 - 8:00 PM.

Referrals - We will accept self-referrals and referrals from community agencies. There is no charge for the program. To ensure enough participants to run the program successfully, we are asking for referrals now. Please fax to 250-785-4659 or scan and send completed referrals to Christine Clark - Clinical Manager - CM@communitybridge.ca. If you have questions, or to obtain a referral form, please contact Christine at the email address given or at 250-785-6021 Ext 228. 

PS Check out the video of our Executive Director - Karla Marsh providing some information on the program. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiIns8ZFi-I
