Grants to help pay for therapy services in Philadelphia
Victims Compensation Assistance Program
If you are a survivor of a crime in Pennsylvania, We are here to offer you a comforting message and a ray of hope. The Pennsylvania Senate recently passed a bill introducing an important program specifically designed to provide counseling services for victims of a crime: sexual assault, physical abuse, mental or emotional abuse, and crime.
This program covers the expenses of therapy services (up to $10,000) that you may require on your path to recovery. We understand that seeking healing can often come with financial barriers, but this program aims to remove those obstacles. By taking advantage of this opportunity, you can access qualified therapists, like the clinicians on our team, who will help guide you through the healing process. Remember, you are not alone in this journey.

Courses instead of using therapy services in Philadelphia
The specially trained therapists at The Better You Institute can work with you to better control your anger. We draw from therapy models that help with emotional regulation at the moment and work to understand where your anger is coming from in the first place. Our goal is to get to the root cause of why you are feeling and responding the way you are.
With our anger management therapy services, you will experience long-term change. You will know what your triggers are, you will understand and be able to show yourself compassion in the moments you find yourself getting angry. Lastly, you will have behavioral techniques to control your responses to the situation, so that you don’t act out in anger and do something you regret.
We accept court-mandated clients and have helped them achieve great success in managing their anger. However, if you need a certificate after your anger management services, you might be looking for a class. If this is the case, you should check out this course. We are not affiliated with this course and do not receive kickbacks from this agency.
