Pendleton Child Service Center is invested in doing our part to eliminate violence against women and children by intervening with the batterer, supporting the empowerment of battered women and children, and promoting social change by fostering an integrative community response to domestic violence. Living in Harmony is an 18-week intensive group-therapy process based on best practices for working with men who batter. The program is based on the Duluth Model and has been certified by the
Virginia Batterer Intervention Program Certification Board.
Domestic Violence is rooted in an antiquated, sexist social structure that produces profound inequities in the distribution of power and resources, in the roles and relationships between men, women, and children in families. This has a devastating effect on victims, their children, and the entire society. It is criminal conduct that cannot be tolerated.
Living in Harmony is a comprehensive community response to domestic violence through education, advocacy, and appropriate intervention. Battering stops only when assailants are held accountable for their abuse and provided with a catalyst to change their abusive thoughts and behaviors.
Positive change is redeeming. If you are ready to embark on a challenging journey of self-discovery that can lead to a safer, more supportive way of being a husband and/or father call Pendleton Child Service Center at 757-385-4537 to schedule your assessment and register to attend Living in Harmony.
