Men's Domestic Violence Intervention
You know that your primary relationship is important and you want it to be gratifying. But violent and controlling behavior puts everything in jeopardy. Domestic violence impacts everyone in your family — you, your partner, and your children. Take a step today to keep your family safe and sound.
Discover the skills you have to lead a positive relationship and stop the controlling behavior of abuse. Our groups help you use these skills and, more importantly, understand your behaviors and learn new ways to be a partner and parent.
What to expect
We meet weekly in Seattle and Bellevue in small-group settings. There are a variety of times to fit your schedule. Our program provides a safe place for you to make the changes you want in your life. If you have contact with children, we also require you to participate in our DV Dads classes.
