Roanoke Chowan Domestic Violence Offender Program
Embracing person-centered approaches to a community problem
Roanoke Chowan Domestic Violence Offender Program offers a 26-week educational group for domestic violence offenders. The overall program goal is to stop violence within the family by intervention and further prevention of abuse. The objectives of the program are as follows:
- For the offender to accept full responsibility for threatening, abusive, and violent behavior.
- For the offender to change attitudes that support threatening, abusive, and violent behavior.
- For the offender to learn new skills of self-control, nonviolence, positive communication, and conflict resolution skills.
The program is modeled after Domestic Abuse Intervention Project (Deluth), and includes modules on Nonviolence, Nonthreatening Behavior, Respect, Support and Trust, Accountability and Honesty, Sexual Respect, Partnership, and Negotiation and Fairness.
Program fees are pro-rated, and ranges from $12.50-$25.00 per session.
Groups meet once per week for a two-hour session. Two trained facilitators lead group and group size does not exceed 15 participants. Female participants who are referred to the program are not enrolled in the groups with male participants.
