Domestic Abuse Intervention Program
Domestic Abuse Intervention Program offers the opportunity to learn and practice nonviolent ways of talking, thinking, and behaving toward others. The programs are designed for those who are willing to take responsibility for their abusive actions.
The programs focus on:
• Power and control issues
• Impact of violence on children, partner, and self
• Beliefs that contribute to violence
• Learning and practicing non-controlling, non-abusive behaviors
• Communication and problem solving
Our Domestic Abuse Intervention Program for men and women meet the standards for local court, parole, probation, and for District Attorney’s Office diversion programs
The Community Outreach Domestic Abuse Intervention Program offers ongoing classes for men and women. Each Domestic Abuse Intervention Program series begins with a required orientation meeting, followed by weekly class sessions. Participants can start classes within two to three weeks of their orientation session.
Each Domestic Abuse Intervention Program is taught by a team of two professional counselors—a man and a woman—with years of experience in teaching behavioral change. All instructors adhere to the ethical guidelines of the National Board of Certified Counselors and Oregon Licensed Professional Counselors.
Fees for the Domestic Abuse Intervention Program will be set at the intake session, a sliding scale is available, on a case-by-case basis. Every effort will be made to accommodate clients, but everyone is expected to pay for their classes.
