Partner Assault Response Program
The primary focus of the Partner Assault Response (PAR) program is to enhance the safety of victims of domestic violence. This is achieved by providing information and support to victims and educating and offering counselling to individuals found guilty of or pleading guilty to a charge of partner assault.
The PAR Group Process is a 12-week group counselling program for people who have been violent, abusive or used any form of coercion towards a spouse/partner. The goal is to increase partner safety and offender accountability. Participants are engaged in structured exercises that help them examine their beliefs and behaviours. They are given the opportunity to understand that past choices were a means to gain power and control over their partner. There are separate groups for women who are found or have pled guilty to a charge of partner abuse. Individuals who have not been charged are welcome to register.
Fees for the 12-week group are on a sliding scale based on annual income. There is no fee for the partner contact portion of the program. Language interpretation services are available if needed.
Groups are available in both Kingston and Napanee (located at the east end of the plaza).
