Ending Relationship Abuse (ERA BC) Resources
The following materials were originally developed and distributed by the Ending Relationship Abuse Society of BC (ERA BC). Due to the dissolution of ERA, their valuable resource material is now housed on the EVA BC website to ensure its continued availability to workers in the field.
Background: Ending Relationship Abuse Society of BC
ERA’s vision was to contribute to stopping violence in relationships through province-wide provision of effective, accessible, ethical services for individuals who have used abuse in relationships. Their primary focus was on abuse against women within the social context of men’s relatively greater power in relationships with women.
ERA was comprised of individuals dedicated to raising awareness about relationship abuse and advocating for effective, accessible and ethical prevention programs and rehabilitation services for offenders. ERA was previously known as the B.C. Association of Counsellors of Abusive Men (ACAM), which was incorporated as a non-profit society in 1993. The Association was formed to facilitate cooperative action toward common goals of effective policy, funding, and training; and to promote the growth and development of high quality services for men who are abusive in relationships with women.
In 2004, it was decided to change the Association’s name to more accurately reflect its vision, which was to stop all relationship abuse. While many ERA members were working primarily with men who use violence in relationships, a significant number were also involved in, or interested in, counselling and research related to women’s use of violence in relationships and violence in same sex relationships. ERA’s goal was to help raise awareness about all forms of abuse in relationships and to advocate for services to make change.
