This training provides a historical overview of intervention strategies to engage people who are abusive in their intimate relationships in a change process, as well as, an opportunity for participants to refine their own philosophies to inform an intentional program design. Research on program effectiveness, examples of curricula and creative engagement strategies that can be used with participants will be shared.


Upon completion of this program, participants should be better able to:

  • Describe how approaches to working with abusive partners have evolved over time and the current variance in programming.
  • Identify tools for developing a program philosophy and engaging your participants, survivors, victim advocates and the broader community in program design.
  • Have increased confidence and skills to engage partners who are abusive in a change process.
