Structure of the Weekly Classes

Our batterer’s intervention program, Non-Violence Intervention Program (NVIP) consists of two tracks: The Standard Track and Accelerated Track. The Standard Track is a 27 week program (including the orientation), facilitated in a group format in our office, for both our Spanish and English speaking participants.

The Accelerated Track is a more intensive program that runs for 14 – 16 weeks, for two hours per week. This track is conducted on an individual basis in the office and/or within the community. Both tracks consist of an orientation. The curriculum is structured around ten themes, and each theme is further divided into three part sub-titles. The themes include the following:
