Survivors of Crime

No one plans to be a victim or witness to a crime.

The Victim Quick Response Program is funded by the Ministry Attorney General to support direct victims, their immediate family members, and witnesses in the immediate aftermath of violent crimes by providing financial support with essential expenses including the costs of short-term counselling services and associated transportation that are needed as a result of the crime.

Invicta Works offers counselling for people enduring the aftermath of a crime. Here are some ways we can help:

  • Provide psychotherapy, using approaches like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) that have an evidence-base supporting their effectiveness.

  • Support you in developing coping strategies. Invicta Works promotes evidence-based coping strategies, such as mindfulness, relaxation training, affect labelling, and cognitive reappraisal.

  • Offer psychoeducation on anxiety to equip you with knowledge and skills to transform your situation.

  • Collaborate with you to explore solutions to your struggles.
