What is social justice counseling?
At SPAN, we incorporate social justice framework into our counseling sessions. This approach allows us to advocate for our clients in a variety of areas whether it is in the therapeutic session or approaching and confronting larger systemic problems related to oppression. We believe that in order to end violence against any individual, youth and child, we must understand and challenge the varying forms of oppression people experience, which can be intricately woven into domestic violence. In a counseling session, we will work side by side with you to respectfully and sensitively explore your own cultural and historical struggles.
Whether you are in the midst of chaos, or years have passed since the last abusive incident, or if you have witnessed a loved one experiencing domestic violence, you can find support. We offer individual short-term counseling sessions and groups that can assist you towards a safer and more informed life.
Children & Youth Counseling
We know domestic violence can affect children and youth differently than adults. In our children & youth counseling program, we offer individual sessions that provide your child or youth with tools to think critically in the real world. Our interactive work ensures that your child or youth can feel safe to explore their own feelings in a way that supports them along the way. In our support groups, we also provide and create an environment of encouragement, respect and safety.
