Participants are encouraged to look at this program as a learning experience rather than “have to”. The program offers an alternative to violence and abuse through intervention, counseling and support. Our main goal is alleviation of domestic violence and its effects on our families, our communities and our future.
The goal of these intervention programs is to teach abusive partners to develop empathy for their victims, identify and self-monitor negative thoughts, and to identify and interrupt the negative self-talk that often precedes incidences of violence, in order to prevent further abuse.
