PSYCHOSOCIAL INTERVENTION

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.
