Radius Child and Youth Services is a specialized community-based organization that provides clinical assessment and counselling services to children, youth and families affected by interpersonal abuse: physical, sexual, or emotional abuse, neglect, or who have witnessed domestic violence. Radius also offers services for children under 12 years old who have engaged in concerning sexual behaviour and adolescents who have engaged in sexually abusive behaviour. Radius is the province’s largest provider of this specialized care. For more than 30 years, we have become a widely recognized leader in the field of abuse prevention and care. We are a multidisciplinary team comprised of social workers, psychotherapists, psychometrists, researchers, and psychologists.
In addition to our clinical work, we provide local, provincial, national, and international training and consultation on issues related to interpersonal violence, children under 12 years old who have engaged in problematic sexual behaviour, and adolescents who have engaged in sexually abusive behaviour. We also conduct research examining the populations we serve, which results in the development and promotion of best practice guidelines, counselling innovations, and increased public awareness that support prevention of abuse.
