CCI Clearinghouse on Abusive Partner Intervention and Engagement

Launching Clearinghouse on Abusive Partner Intervention and Engagement

For decades, the idea that “nothing works” dominated the conversation around rehabilitating domestic violence offenders and little credence was given to the idea of changing behavior through education and judicial oversight. Today, while the link between courts and offender intervention programs is well-established, debate continues about what actually works. However, a growing body of evidence suggests that programs can improve outcomes by incorporating comprehensive assessments that gauge level of risk, trauma, hope and other needs; cognitive-behavioral learning strategies; and accountability mechanisms that reflect and value culture and community and incorporate self-reflection.

As part of the Abusive Partner Accountability and Engagement Training and Technical Assistance Project, the Center for Court Innovation, in collaboration with Futures Without Violence and a team of national experts, has created a clearinghouse of research and resources about these strategies, as well as general information and support around abusive partner intervention and engagement. We hope you find this tool useful in your work!
