Abuser Intervention Program



The Abuser Intervention Program is a 32-week group process that focuses on identifying abusive and controlling behaviors, examining influences that contribute to violence, discussing the effects of violence on victims, children, and perpetrators, and replacing abusive behaviors with non-abusive actions. It provides training in new skills of self-management, communication, empathy, and problem-solving. The focus of these groups is to take accountability for violent behaviors.
