The Center For Life Skills Development
Our Domestic Violence "DV" Program
At the center we provide an environment for change for people who use violence against their partner or family members. The program for women is turning points and for men it is creating a process for change for men who batter. Violent behavior is not limited to an intimate partner; it is a community issue.
Programs provided at The Center:
Men's DV Education and Treatment
Women's DV Education and Treatment
DV Parenting Education
DV Aftercare (support group)
We help our clients by: providing an understanding of how abuse stems from beliefs of entitlement that controls one's partner by actions, thoughts and feelings increasing a client understanding of the causes of violence that include: culture & social context increasing clients willingness to change actions and behaviors through personal acceptance of responsibility and accountability to provide an opportunity for all people to fund love, trust, and commitment to relationships with others by learning new ways to acting in relationship that include respect and equality.
DV Parenting Classes: 6 week course designed to educate the client on developmental stages of childhood, discipline and the parenting needs in each of these stages. The parenting class is an ongoing program to develop new skills.
