This manual is used as a guide for group counselling under the Rankin Inlet Spousal Abuse Counseling Program. The goals of the program are:

•  Reducing incidence of domestic violence and spousal abuse in the community.

•  Paramount consideration of the safety of the victims and families as well as the needs of the persons who abuse through the operation of a different counseling program for each.

•  Operating the program with input and support from the community, particularly from respected Elders, so that it suits the needs of the community and incorporates traditional Inuit knowledge.

•    Delivering a therapeutically sound and culturally appropriate program, which focuses on changing controlling behaviour and extreme emotional dependence.
