When you need domestic abuse help the most, sometimes finding the right help is most difficult. The “right” help is critical with domestic abuse interventions.
Domestic violence services are as varied as the needs of those seeking service. There are free emergency crisis intervention services for those requiring protection from immediate danger. There are shelter services for those needing housing and safety.
There are domestic violence expert consulting services for those needing an expert witness. There are domestic violence counseling services for those wanting help healing the wounds of relationship violence.
We offer domestic violence counseling and consulting services to individuals, both women and men, from all walks of life and in varying types of domestic abuse situations—from relationship bullying to spousal abuse to parental alienation.
If you need personal help, let us know. Below is a brief description of our intervention services.
Intimate Partner Abuse Treatment Program
The Intimate Partner Abuse Treatment Program is a finely tuned domestic violence treatment protocol, integrating a psycho-educational intervention promoting change for batterers and a psychotherapeutic intervention facilitating healing for domestic abuse survivors.
These clinically proven interventions are the appropriate mode of treatment for intimate partner violence, and are delivered by licensed psychologists specializing in the treatment domestic violence.
The Intimate Partner Abuse Treatment Program combines these interventions in a parallel and concurrent format. Each partner receives individual therapy, unlike traditional marital therapy. And when certain criteria are fulfilled, they come together in a conjoint format to further the application of domestic abuse healing principles in the context of relationship therapy.
This is your alternative to marital therapy, which you may know is counter-indicated for intimate partner abuse. In other words, martial therapy is not effective for domestic abuse treatment. Many people will tell you it is counterproductive, potentially causing more conflict.
The Intimate Partner Abuse Treatment Program is an innovative treatment regimen designed to end domestic abuse in one’s effort to save their partnership/marriage. For more information about this program, please visit: Intimate Partner Abuse Treatment Program.
Expert Consulting for Legal Domestic Abuse
Consulting for Legal Domestic Abuse is available for those in an abusive relationship who are interfacing with the healthcare and or legal system. Most often this is a domestic abuse survivor involved in divorce proceedings with child custody litigation, or the threat of custody litigation or child custody reconsideration in an appeal case.
We are highly sensitive to the impact of the legal abuse syndrome and allegations of parental alienation. Our expertise is in helping abuse victims protect their rights, liberties and mental health status as they navigate the family court system.
Family Violence Intervention Program
The Family Violence Intervention is typically inspired by a close friend or family member of the abused. It is most often initiated prior to the individual in the abusive relationship awakening to the danger in which they live.
The intervention begins with contact from the concerned family member or friend. The focus of the first phase of the intervention is information and data collection.
Once the network of support is established to bridge the expertise into a consulting relationship with the abused, phase two of the intervention begins. This phase involves personal counseling and psychotherapy for the individual in the abusive relationship.
Individual Counseling or Psychotherapy
Individual Counseling or Psychotherapy is designed for, and initiated by, an individual that is a survivor of intimate partner violence or is a partner in interactional relationship abuse. We employ a patient-centered approach integrating humanistic insight-oriented psychotherapy and energy psychology, by seasoned psychologists and domestic violence victim advocates.
The domestic abuse intervention involves conflict resolution, affect modulation, power and control dynamics, along with a domestic abuse offender psycho-educational curriculum. Essentially, these patients learn self-regulation, self-control, compassionate communication and empathy enrichment.
The energy psychology modalities we employ are informed trauma based therapies, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), and numerous self-healing modalities, including Clinically Standardized Meditation and EEG Coherence Training.
Re-victimized by Perpetrator’s Use of the System
When batterers re-victimize victims, things become even more complex. Are you falsely accused of domestic abuse?
It’s no secret that abusers use law enforcement to control their victims. When all else fails and they feel they are losing the grip of their control, they reach for the aid of the system to control their partners.
Our goal is to help you identify and evidence intimate partner violence when you are the victimized party. Our commitment to this end stems from our desire to ensure that domestic abuse survivors not be victimized by a perpetrator’s use of the system to batter them.
