Ending the Cycle
The “cycle of violence” is an unhealthy environment of never ending conflict. It destroys relationships and self-esteem, and can seriously affect future personal relationships. Children who grow up in this kind of environment are at risk of becoming victims of abuse, or of learning to use the abusive behavior in their future relationships. When caught in the “cycle”, the roles of the victim and the abuser often become blended. The “Spirit of Peace” program understands this and invites anyone who wishes to break the cycle of violence to attend the program. Whether referred, invited by another participant, or simply choosing to attend for your own benefit, everyone is welcome. The program does not judge or lay blame, but treats everyone with respect.
