Participant Workbook – Brain Change Curriculum for Domestic Violence
52 Sessions Softcover – NOTE: This Participant Workbook compliments the Leaders Manual: Brain Change Curriculum for Domestic Violence
The Participant Workbook -Brain Change Curriculum for Domestic Violence – 52 Sessions is the result of Dr. Ron Potter-Efron and Pat Potter-Efron’s work and experience in providing anger management and domestic violence treatment for almost 30 years. The combination of their experience and wealth of knowledge in the field of neuroscience has earned the endorsement of the National Anger Management Association (NAMA). The integration of neuroscience, anger management, and domestic violence proves significant for the treatment of domestic violence offenders. For instance the volume of brain matter increases substantially as an individual chooses to practice a new skill. This Participant Workbook offers an innovative ‘brain change plan’ with a focus on ‘safety for all’.
