Free, Online Course for Domestic Violence and Abuse Offenders

If you are on the front line of working with domestic violence and abuse offenders, we’ve developed a free, online course that might be a good way to supplement and enhance the great work you do with your clients.

The Transformation Journey Course

As a pillar of our mission to stop domestic violence and abuse at its source by restoring and healing those causing harm, we are excited to announce the launch of a new resource: The Transformation Journey course.

A few years ago, we released our Guidebook. Then, we began facilitating Groups to discuss the concepts shared in the Guidebook in a safe, interactive environment. Both initiatives have been wildly successful, with thousands accessing these resources.

As good as these tools are, they don’t work for everyone. Some struggle to stay engaged with simply reading a workbook and answering questions. For others, shame prevents them from signing up and showing up for an online group. Or, the group’s schedule simply didn’t work with theirs.

In response, we’ve developed an online course that turns our Guidebook and Groups into a self-paced, multi-media, interactive experience. It’s not a replacement for the other two, just a great alternative. And it’s free.

We hope you check it out.

Why Online Courses May Be the Next Evolution in Abuse Change Programs

We think online courses like The Transformation Journey will be a significant part of future abuse change programs. On Thursday, September 29, 2022 at 9 AM Pacific, we’re hosting a webinar to discuss:
  • Why and how we built our course to address many unmet needs in this space
  • Where online courses fit in the perpetrator change ecosystem
  • Where online courses fall short

Register here for this webinar. We hope to see you there.
