What People Are Saying
Facilitators from a wide-variety of organizations - correctional facilities, family resource centers, state and local government programs - are successfully educating fathers and strengthening families with the Understanding Domestic Violence Curriculum Module. Check out their stories below.
What facilitators are saying:
"I think this is a very non-threatening way to educate men about the dynamics of domestic violence without offending them. I didn't see anything that was 'victim blaming' or 'politically incorrect.' I like how much time the men spend interacting and sharing opinions. I would love to be a 'fly on the wall' in one of your modules."
Janet Scott-Mace, Associate Executive Director
Women's Center and Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh, PA)
"[I] just completed the new domestic violence curriculum with three fathers from my men's group. They really enjoyed the activities and we had some great discussions...I'm very pleased."
Bob Brinker, Facilitator
Parentwise (Greensburg, PA)
What dads are saying:
"Very enlightening about different forms of Domestic violence...talking about the triggers that lead to violence really made me aware of the different types abuse can take."
