Overview of Services
The Canadian Institute of Workplace Harassment and Violence (CIWHV) offers all organizations, professions, and industries, a specialized service to address negative, conflictual, and destructive employee behaviors and actions that give rise to psychological distress and harm to others.

Repair & Recovery
First session will involve an assessment of the client’s experiences, needs, resources, employers’ policies and steps taken so far. We will prioritize for strategy development and goal setting. Building a place of safety and trust is priority. It will take time. We will focus on your safety and building a connection.
Ongoing sessions will depend on the client’s situation.
Each case is unique.
