It is a known fact that anger and violence in our community causes dysfunction, devastation and tragedy. Anger and violence also places a huge economic and social strain on our community and its resources.
Quite frankly, it can devastate lives for generations to come.
The Anger Management & Conflict Resolution program is tailored for those individuals who have been charged with offences by the police, or are 1st time Respondents in Domestic Violence Applications, as well as people who want to develop skills to overcome the harmful effects of rage on themselves and their loved ones.
The aim of this course is to provide these individuals with a brief intervention program that will provide them with skills to identify triggers causing anger and ways in which to manage these triggers. There are currently no brief intervention courses or services in this area being offered and those that are available, can be very expensive (through private practitioners), or take a lot of time to complete, (from 12 – 26 weeks). This expense or significant duration of time, may create barriers to help and set people up for failure, particularly when they are best suited to a brief intervention program.
The principle supporting this program is that a brief intervention provides clinical pathways into further treatment. Research affirms that if people have experienced the benefit of a brief intervention, then they are more likely to engage with further intensive services when they need them. The benefit of this program is that charges / domestic violence matters can dealt with quickly and efficiently through the court system.
A major advantage of this course to the court is to provide another resource to deal with and manage offenders in the community. The court may be able to consider the completion of this course when assessing the factors of rehabilitation, deterrence, and community protection pursuant to s.9 of the Penalties and Sentences Act. Further, court may be able to consider the completion of this course when assessing issues pertaining to the making of Domestic Violence Orders for 1st time offenders and the conditions contained therein.
If the individual attends and satisfactorily participates in the course, then they will receive a certificate of Participation and Completion which can be presented to the court in their matter. Further, this course could form part of the conditions of the individual’s probation / parole as determined by their case officer.
