Perpetrators, victims, and children of domestic abuse all have a part in the revolving door of abuse. Abuse is a silent issue that plagues many individuals and families. Abuse is not just physical. It comes in many forms: mental/ psychological, sexual, financial, and verbal/ emotional.
We offer various programs tailored for each affected party of Domestic Abuse. Through the Perpetrator Project, men and women who have abused are given tools individualized to their needs in order to reduce and/or eliminate recurrence of abuse. Through Domestic Abuse Coaching, victims and children of abuse are educated about roles they have played in abuse. They are then trained with the skills to change current maladaptive mindsets and behaviors and engage in more appropriate, safe, and adaptive skills and behaviors to live a more fulfilled and healthy life.
