Anger Management Groups
This group has been designed for children and youth who are having difficulties controlling their frustration and anger.

Through fun filled activities and practice sessions, children and youth learn how to understand a variety of emotions and the resulting physical and emotional responses. Practice sessions help to identify the consequences of impulsive behaviour and angry outbursts and teach positive conflict resolution.
Children and youth learn to understand how anger causes tension in the body and to recognize their anger triggers. By recognising the triggers, new responses and behaviours can be developed.

Groups are available for children and youth aged: 4-7, 8-12, and 13-15.

The Sexual Treatment Outpatient Program (S.T.O.P.)
(S.T.O.P.) is a mental health treatment based program for children/youth ages 4 to 18 who are exhibiting sexual behaviour problems or have been charged with a sexual offence.

Research shows that the average age of a victim is slightly over four years of age and a child with sexualized behaviour problems will have 3.5 victims by the age of 10. Without behaviour specific treatment, these children/youth are at much greater risk to continue offending, often increasing the number of victims and the severity of the sexual offence.

The S.T.O.P. program has a proven success rate of over 90%. Great attention is paid to ensure extensive safety planning, comprehensive assessment, and high quality treatment in co-operation with professionals and agencies within Niagara and beyond. The sooner sexualized behaviour in children and youth is identified and treated, fewer victims will have to suffer significant trauma.

Youth Justice Program
Our Youth Justice program addresses the needs of the Community and the position of the Victim. The three components of our work are:


Extra Judicial Measures — Pre–Charge
Partnering with the OPP, we assist the young person through a pre-charge program while holding them accountable for their actions. We contract with the young person and provide them with sanctions to complete prior to having any formal measures taken. The outcome of the individual file is reported to the OPP.

Extra Judicial Sanctions — Post–Charge
Partnering with the Crown’s Office, Police, and Probation, we assist the young person through an alternative to a formal court procedure. We contract with the young person and provide them with sanctions to complete, that enable them to payback the community for any wrong doings in which they may have participated. Assisting the young person in coming to terms with having made a wrong decision, we encourage them to make a positive change in their future.

Probation
The Community Service Program assists the young person in finding a suitable Community Placement in which they can fulfill their obligation to the Court and complete their Community Service Hours. With the Probation Officer, we monitor the young person’s performance, report any issues that might arise, and terminate the file at the completion of the Community Placement.
