Psychosocial intervention

Close up of hands woman using phone in coffee shop with depth of field


Psychosocial intervention for violent radicalization is an extremely complex and delicate process that calls for a personalized, holistic approach. At the CPRLV, our intervention programs are designed to allow for the use of multiple approaches and practices. The aims of our programs are:

  • to provide a free, confidential service to help individuals cease their involvement in radical groups and break free of violent ideologies or behaviours;
  • to meet individuals’ psychological needs through alternative, non-violent means;
  • to provide support to at-risk individuals through early identification of vulnerability and protective factors associated with different aspects of the process of radicalization leading to violence;
  • to put individuals in contact with other victims or former radicals to share their experiences;
  • to provide support to:
    • persons worried about individuals they know;
    • friends and family of radicalized individuals;
    • persons who have lost a loved one due to the latter’s involvement in a violent radical group or movement.
