Relationship Violence Program
The Relationship Violence Prevention Program (RVPP) is a two-part standardized program required for all medium and high risk male clients under supervision for an offence related to relationship violence, to learn how to improve their relationship skills and end violence. Part one of the RVPP is Respectful Relationships (RR), delivered by trained Corrections Branch staff. Part two of RVPP is the Relationship Violence Program (RVP), which adds to the clients’ understanding of their relationship behaviour, and is delivered by qualified counsellors sub-contracted by Stroh Health Care throughout the Province. The vision of the RVPP is to eliminate all forms of physical, sexual, emotional, psychological, and financial abuse perpetrated by male offenders against their intimate female partners.
