Designed for medium to high risk offenders, the Adult Domestic Violence curriculum uses a unique, interactive model to allow participants to explore why they use violence to try to solve problems. They practice the skills necessary to cope with interpersonal problems in a nonviolent manner. Participants will learn that problems that they think are solved with violence are never permanently solved, and individuals will make a commitment never to use violence in their relationships.

The Adult Domestic Violence workbook is available in English.
