Perhaps you don’t consider your situation an emergency, but are looking for help. WSC offers
specialized services with counselors who understand the complex issues of abuse and are
sensitive to its effects on individuals. You may have already confided in someone about the
abuse and didn’t get support. Friends and family members may consider domestic violence a
“private matter" and not want to get involved. Or, they are afraid of retaliation. Others
mistakenly blame the victims and fail to hold the batterers accountable. WSC staff
understands that these responses — or lack of – may only add to a victim’s feelings of
confusion, guilt, fear and loneliness.
Talking with a professionally trained counselor can help to sort out the problems caused by emotional and physical abuse. At WSC, a person does not need to stay in the safe house facility to receive supportive services. Participants may be living or involved with their abusive partner, or may use the services to address past, rather than present, abusive relationships.
We offer individual and group sessions. The group provides the opportunity to learn from
others who have experienced put downs and broken promises, wondered if they were losing
their minds, and hoped the abuse would never happen again. Group discussions can include
exploring power and control, abuse and anger; the dynamic of an abusive relationship, safety
planning; affects of DV on women and children, etc.
Counselors also provide counseling and help with parent education, life skills improvement, women’s health, vocational development, community networking, and job and housing searches. Children can also benefit from Child psychologist to overcome trauma, fear, aggressive behavior, etc.
