Turning Point ProgramThe target populations of the Turning Point Program are high risk adults involved in the justice system. Referrals for assessment are also accepted from other agencies, as are direct self-referrals for assessment from adult Islanders.
The purpose of this program is to provide counselling to men who want to stop controlling and abusive behaviour towards their female partner. The program assists participants to challenge and take responsibility for emotions and behaviour in processes which allow for increased self-awareness. The program also focuses upon the development of skills related to problem solving and communication, allowing participants to deal with anger and other emotions in a constructive manner.
