Anger Management

Inappropriate displays of anger may indicate serious emotional or health issues due to trauma, grief, or addiction. We understand that anger is a natural emotion but Do Not advocate holding it in.

Our Anger Management Program uses evidence-based curriculum that has been shown to improve a client’s ability to manage their anger, be aware of their triggers and realize the impact of their anger on others and family.

Awareness + Action = Change!

Batterers Intervention Program (BIP)

The Knowledge Firm uses The Duluth Model that creates A Process of Change for Men Who Batters. It is a 27 Week program using differentiated treatment approaches tailored to the individual and the type of violence. Research indicates that there are a few substantive differences in treating male vs female domestic offenders and our domestic violence counseling is appropriate for both.

We provide comprehensive reports including pre/post assessments to any referral sources and courts if requested. All participants get a certificate upon successful completion of the program.

Domestic Violence Counseling

Our domestic violence counseling program contains three domestic violence offender agendas:

13 Week Educational Program intended for clients with a minimal history of physical aggression within and outside the home.

26 Week Program is intended for a mixture of less assaultive and more assaultive and more assaultive individuals (especially useful communities or organizations that can only implement one program).

56 Week Program is intended for individuals with more severe histories of domestic violence and other assaultive or physically violent behaviors.

These programs have been designed primarily from a cognitive behavior therapy orientation. This model emphasizes helping our clients discover and then alter dysfunctional thought and belief patterns and support or justify acts of domestic violence. Typical topics include: “Changing How You Think”, Empathy Development, and Changing What You Do”.

Restorative Justice Victim Offender Mediation

Is a peace-building conflict resolution process that deals with violations of criminal laws by addressing the underlying conflict resulting in injuries to the Victim and Offender. The process is conducted in a highly victim-sensitive manner while considering the needs of the offender. Key elements are:

  • Restorative Justice contributes to a criminal justice system that is accessible, just, compassionate, and fair while promoting the well-being of all persons.
  • Emphasizes the rights of persons to participate in attempting to achieve Justice rather than defer the matter entirely to the state criminal process.
  • Based on an understanding that crime is a violation of people and relationships.
  • Can be used with adult and youth victim offenders.
  • Based on respect, compassion, and inclusivity, encouraging meaningful engagement and encourages meaningful engagement and accountability, whereby providing an opportunity for healing, reparation, and reintegration
  • Offers opportunities for victims, offenders and communities affected by a crime to communicate directly or indirectly about the causes, circumstances, and impact of that crime
  • Processes include conferences, dialogues and circles guided by skilled facilitators and can take different forms defending on the program, school, case, participants, circumstances
  • Used by communities, police, courts, and correction departments.
