Importance Importance

One-to-one support sessions help women to heal from their trauma and to build trust and good relationships with people who want to help them. Likewise, access to creative outlets such as art therapy can help children who have experienced domestic abuse to express their feelings, build better methods of communication, and promote a healthy recovery.
