Program Description

The Problem:

Experiences of trauma are common. Past trauma, including personal, community, and system oppression, can influence a person’s behaviors, values, and actions. Anger, an emotion that occurs for many reasons, can result in violent and abusive behavior.

Our Solution:

EAC Network’s Abusive Partner Intervention Program uses a Dignity & Respect curriculum which is based on cognitive and behavioral strategies. It helps motivate individuals to address the underlying, pressing problems through intervention and education. APIP participants, with high or low risks, are enrolled in a 16 or 26-week curriculum that focuses on four areas of accountability and change including self, intimate partner relationships, family, and community. The curriculum helps to examine how trauma may have contributed to the participant’s violent or harmful behavior, and guides participants to build new skills that lead to the development of healthy and non-violent relationships in the future.

How We Do it:

APIP offers a comprehensive curriculum for individuals charged with conflict-related offenses. During the course, participants examine the behavioral and motivating factors that contributed to their referral, learn about the consequences of their aggression, and analyze the cost of their behavior to the family and community-at-large. This culturally-sensitive approach engages participants in developing healthy relationships.
