Update October 25, 2017
Our Pathways 2 Justice project is in full swing. This partnership between BTPI and the NS Association of Black Social Workers is funded by Status of Women Canada, 2017- January 2020. In addition to the various networks and initiatives we are involved in, we are excited to be participating in working groups for the development of the Domestic Violence Court Program in Halifax Regional Municipality. This is an exciting effort by government working collaboratively with community-based services/agencies on more effective ways to address gendered violence, while also integrating the needs, safety and voices/choices of survivors. The program is expected to be up and running in January 2018.

Hosted by the Forensic Sexual Behaviour Program with a grant from Sexual Violence Strategy Prevention Innovation Fund. Workshop will cover stats, the effects that internet porn has on your brain/relationships/society, how to figure out if you/someone you know/your client is engaged in problematic porn use, and how porn can be used in a healthier way. We will be supplying contact information for professionals who work with porn/sex addiction, as well as internet resources. The talks are designed for the general public and professionals. The goal of these talks is to open a conversation, and encourage people to think about how the internet has affected sexuality, sometimes in unexpected ways.
