As part of individual therapy, you will be asked to read the required books, complete the Binder exercises, and engage with the program.
PWR encourages patients to include their families in their therapy as family support has been identified as a key to success. We have found that families are often secondary victims and experience many emotions as a result.
For a complete list of all the activities and exercises you will be working on, take a look at the Table of Contents for the Binder.
As part of PWR’s program for High Risk Behaviors, you will be required to participate in a comprehensive intake assessment. For more information, see Book an Appointment
Please note that PWR’s intake assessment is separate from a forensic assessment that is conducted by a forensic psychiatrist or psychologist. PWR’s assessment is for the purpose of treatment and directing an appropriate course of therapy.
To schedule a consultation, please contact PWR’s Mental Health Worker Ms. Benita Joy by phone at 416 894 1502 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
