Programme for Vulnerable Mothers
The needs of mothers in care proceedings or child protection measures are often complex, with enduring problems around adult attachments, accountability and prioritising their children’s safety. In these cases, intensive, challenging and focused work is needed in order to support lasting change.
DV-ACT experts have created a unique bespoke programme specifically for mothers where domestic abuse is a concern.
Motivational Work for Perpetrators
To be suitable for a domestic abuse perpetrator programme perpetrators must show some acceptance of their abusive behaviour. However, many Fathers can become stuck in denial and minimisation so that they cannot complete appropriate treatment programmes to reduce their risk.
In these cases, DV-ACT experts can deliver an intensive motivational programme that will aim to move the client to a position where he is suitable to attend a group work programme.
Domestic Abuse Perpetrator Programme
A one to one programme of work can be completed with perpetrators who are unsuitable for a group work programme due to a lack of provision. This could be due to the need for an interpreter, they are a female perpetrator or in a same-sex relationship. This programme of work can be tailored to the needs of the client and will include a final report upon completion. The length of time/number of sessions will be decided on a case by case basis.
