Paths of Courage Residential Healing Program pioneered by SACQD
The Paths of Courage Residential Healing Program is a one of a kind program, pioneered by the Sexual Assault Centre for Quinte & District. Our intent through Paths of Courage is to provide survivors with safe opportunities to make the healing journey from the after-effects of sexual violence to self-awareness and wholeness.
A Need for “Something More”
It was developed after years of SACQD participants talking about the need for “something more” – beyond the typical one hour counselling session. We learned, through feedback, as well as through informed research, that if we are still sitting in a room engaged in talk therapy, that we are missing out on so many other possible options that may be beneficial to survivors. As helpful, and in many cases, “life saving”, as talk therapy can be, we wanted to offer another alternative to our existing program.
A unique program that offers sustained, intensive therapeutic counseling in a safe, healing, residential environment.
