Domestic Violence Intervention Program (Batterers Intervention)

Certified by the Alabama Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The program consists of an initial intake and 16 two-hour sessions designed to assess, educate, and rehabilitate the serious and repeat domestic abuser. It was developed and based on the Cognitive-Behavorial, Psycho-Educational, and Pro-Feminist Models. Each group has both a female and male facilitator to display appropriate role modeling as required by the coalition. Also required for certification, is to keep the victim informed of the perpetrator’s progress during the program. The courts and local victim’s shelter are also informed of the perpetrator’s progress. Our program is open and on-going, which means after the intake evaluation, the perpetrator can immediately begin group sessions. The goal of the Domestic Violence Intervention Program is to be a part of the community to eliminate domestic violence, to make safety of the victim and children of primary importance, and to effect social change leading to cultural values that prohibit abuse within family and intimate relationships. Program personnel are required and provided accredited continuing education units that include facilitator training as well as victim’s issues training for compliance during certification terms.

Theft Intervention Program

Level 1: is one four-hour class designed to prevent theft through individual behavior modification training. Students learn about the problem of theft and the legal response to the problem. They learn about personal and social consequences related to theft and ways to control and eliminate the shoplifting behaviors. The goal of level one is to encourage the student to become thoroughly aware of the problem and all of its social and legal ramifications as well as to better understand themselves and to evaluate how they will respond to the problem. Level 2: is one eight-hour class designed to prevent theft through individual behavior modification. Students first cover the Level 1 portion detailed above and have additional working sessions. During these sessions, students develop personal responses to theft and plans to make their response work. The desired results of these sessions are that each student will develop a very clear and practical plan for eliminating all theft related behavior in the future by evaluating their choices and consequences.
