Appeasement workshops

Appeasement workshops are designed for individuals aged 13+ who are on the waiting list for individual follow-ups to help them deal with the consequences of sexual assault. Registration for these workshops is voluntary. These workshops are offered in the afternoon or evening. Each workshop lasts 2 hours. The first workshop addresses myths and prejudices surrounding sexual violence, aiming to deconstruct them. Subsequent workshops address the issues of mistrust, anxiety and flashbacks that can result from sexual assault. Each workshop provides tools to ensure the well-being of each participant.

Individual Help

Helping relationship follow-up objectives are discussed and established between the counsellor and the client. Meetings take place on an ongoing weekly basis.

This follow-up is adapted to the needs of the individual and aims to work on the current consequences of the sexual violence suffered.

We offer a maximum of 15 one-on-one meetings with clients.

Services to Friends and Family

One-on-One Support

At CPIVAS, we recognize and value the contribution and support of loved ones in the process of helping people who have suffered sexual assault. We firmly believe that the attitude of a loved one can make a big difference in the healing process. We therefore feel it is necessary to offer them a safe space in which to take care of their own experiences so that they are predisposed to acquiring tools and adopting attitudes that can be helpful to their loved ones.

The follow-up consists of 5 to 10 continuous weekly meetings.

    Women’s Group

    This group was designed for any woman who experienced sexual violence, and wants to break the silence and experience healthy, fair and equal relationships within a group of women sharing a common experience. The group program comprises 13 3-hour sessions. Each meeting focuses on a particular theme, where women can discuss their experiences in relation to the theme and support each other. Some people might want to consider starting individual therapy before joining the group to take a few personal steps towards recovery to fully benefit from the group experience.

    One-on-one Psychotherapy Sessions

    Psychotherapeutic goals are discussed and established between the psychotherapist and the client. Meetings are held on an ongoing, weekly basis.

    This follow-up program aims to help people who have experienced sexual assault to carry out a healing process tailored to their needs and at their own pace.

    We offer a maximum of 15 one-on-one meetings with customers.

    Self-defence Classes for Girls and Women

    The OOPS program is a prevention tool enabling girls and women to recognize and use their ability and right to defend themselves. This will empower them and make them feel safer and less vulnerable to all types of violence. The aim is to fight the effects of gender socialization and inequality.

    The course takes place over 2 full days or 4 half-days.

    To participate, you must 12 years old or older.
