    Another Way…Choosing to Change: Participant’s Handbook supports individuals as they progress through a facilitator-led, strengths-based, solution-focused batterer intervention program. The handbook presents participants with an intentional and strategic collection of questions and exercises designed to support transformational learning and promote empathy building.

    This unique curriculum combines evidence-based clinical practices with adult learning principles to promote changes in the thoughts, feelings, and actions of participants. It educates participants on what constitutes abusive behaviors, encourages introspection, promotes personal responsibility for abusive behaviors, and teaches non-violent conflict resolution.

    The handbook progresses in tandem with the 52-week curriculum, providing participants with weekly interventions and actionable goals. Coping skills, spiritual and emotional healing, relationship management, parenting, socialization, recovery from trauma, mindfulness and relaxation, and personal growth, among a number of other topics, are explored in a group setting, allowing for meaningful discussion and support.

    Another Way…Choosing to Change is an exemplary curriculum to rehabilitate domestic violence offenders and, in doing so, increase safety and empathy for victims of violence.
