Healthy, nurturing, and loving fathers play a significant role in preventing domestic violence. Fathers who participate in this workshop will increase their awareness of what domestic violence is and, as a result, reduce the likelihood of domestic violence in their families. This workshop has information on domestic violence, such as its cyclical nature and recognizing its red flags, which can help keep men out of a Batterer Intervention Program (BIP.)

Understanding Domestic Violence

This resource was a really effective way of breaking down barriers with my teen fathers. It explained the different types of domestice violence which in turned opened the eyes of my fathers which only thought domestic violence was physical. Great resource!

Use this tool often

At the home visiting program where I engage fathers, I use this tool with men who are involved in domestic violence, and are learning to be single parents following the incident(s). Part of that transition is understanding the impact domestic violence has on children, and how to better manage behavior to hopefully avoid recurrence in the future. Through my work, I have seen men grapple with the difficult questions posed in these sessions, and grow toward bring better, more empathic men and fathers. In my work having effective tools to help men makes the program stronger, and increases the lasting impact we can make in our community. Without hesitation I recommend this session to anyone working with domestic violence perpetrators. It is an effective tool to engage men with such a difficult and sensitive topic.
