The curriculum Creating a Process of Change for Men Who Batter was developed using the Duluth Model method of organizing a coordinated community response to domestic violence. The men’s program is just one intervention that works in concert with all other interventions in the community and within the criminal justice system
One component of the Duluth Model is listening and learning from those we serve. What we have learned from our training participants is a strong desire for more time during the training to practice dialogue. To meet this need, we have added a half day to the training.
The training is perfect for anyone who is:
- Starting a batterer intervention program
- New to men’s non-violence group facilitation
- Looking to sharpen their facilitation skills and deepen their insight.
We strongly encourage anyone who is using early versions of the curriculum or parts or adaptations of more-recent versions to join us. Learning about the curriculum in this context should both deepen your understanding of the curriculum and how best to use it in a social change framework.
All training leaders are experienced Creating a Process of Change for Men Who Batter group facilitators. The topics they cover will include:
- Theories that guide Creating a Process of Change for Men Who Batter
- Facilitating structured, interactive classes
- Establishing and maintaining dialogue while avoiding collusion
- Using control logs, equality logs, exercises including role-plays and video vignettes
- Helping men identify and change beliefs that support violence
- Learning how a Creating a Process of Change for Men Who Batter program fits within a Duluth Model interagency coordinated community response
