The Healing Journey

This site offers a number of publications for people who are working in the area of family violence prevention for Aboriginal communities – both on- and off-reserve.

Surviving the Past

This web site looks at the history and nature of institutional child abuse. It shows us how survivors are naming the abuse and restoring dignity in their lives and communities. For the purpose of this web site, institutional child abuse means the abuse forced upon a child living in an institution in Canada.


National Aboriginal Circle Against Family Violence

NACAFV’s mandate is to reduce family violence in Aboriginal communities by supporting the people on the front lines who work diligently to provide safe family environments.

It doesn’t have to be physical to be abuse

You might not notice it’s happening. You may just think it’s normal. It’s not. Verbal and other non-physical abuse can take a serious toll on your psychological and emotional health. It can also be a serious warning sign for more physical forms of abuse and sexual violence.
