Family Violence Intervention Program Classes
The groups allow for personal, emotional and psychological development in the areas of responsiveness to feelings of anger, violence and maladaptive reactions. Most adults were not taught how to respond to situations, feelings, and emotions. Our partnership will allow you to learn these new skills rather quickly, so you can communicate with your loved ones in a loving and healthy manner. #FVIP classes are made of gender-specific groups. Each group discusses and deals with issues that are problematic in our daily lives.
It is neither realistic nor possible to completely eliminate anger and violence, therefore, the goal of #Family Violence Intervention Program classes is to learn how to cope with and express anger and violence in a healthy way. The interventions in each class are designed to build cognitive restructuring of maladaptive thought patterns and behaviors.
In #FVIP classes, we discuss the difference between anger, hostility, aggression, and violence, so that participants can appropriately define and express their experience. Additionally, the #FVIP classes curriculum is designed to address the effects of anger on the body, behavior, mind and how it can lead to violence. These interactive #FVIP classes include various case studies and scenarios that address specific, anger-inducing situations in order to facilitate group dialogues related to appropriate and healthy responses. Additionally, clients will be challenged to objectively question their initial reactions and consequently reframe it to a healthier perspective.
