Creating a Process of Change for Men Who Batter
The curriculum Creating a Process of Change for Men Who Batter was developed using the Duluth Model method of organizing a coordinated community response to domestic violence.  The men’s program is just one intervention that works in concert with all other interventions in the community and within the criminal justice system. ​We strongly encourage anyone who is using early versions of the curriculum or parts or adaptations of more-recent versions to join us. Learning about the curriculum in this context should both deepen your understanding of the curriculum and how best to use it in a social change framework.   

The training is perfect for anyone who is:
  • Starting a batterer intervention program
  • New to men’s non-violence group facilitation
  • Looking to sharpen their facilitation skills and deepen their insight

Training topics to be covered include:

  • Theories that guide Creating a Process of Change for Men Who Batter
  • Facilitating structured, interactive classes
  • Establishing and maintaining dialogue while avoiding collusion
  • Using control logs, equality logs, exercises including role-plays and video vignettes
  • Helping men identify and change beliefs that support violence
  • Learning how a Creating a Process of Change for Men Who Batter program fits within a Duluth Model interagency coordinated community response
