Ipsicc school: 

An international certificate is given in psychotherapy from a christian perspective through vocational training.

Therapeutic activities: 

- an integrated program to help survivors cope with the pain, leave the past and to hopefully look toward the future through specialized and separate treatment groups for women and men. 

- specialist counseling sessions: a closed world is formed for those who survived abuse revolving around feelings of guilt and shame which shuts them out of life. On the other hand, we say "you have a place in life." 

- various support groups 

- supervision sessions for those who help survivors 

- sports days and spiritual conferences
