Another Way...Choosing to Change: Facilitator Guide - 26 Week Curriculum is a victim-centered, research-informed curriculum that addresses criminogenic risk and needs in order to achieve transformational learning and promote empathy building. The psychoeducational format, which features a trauma-informed approach and uses such promising practices as motivational interviewing and ACEs research, helps practitioners lead groups through an innovative, highly relational, and skills-based batterer intervention program. This edition is specifically tailored to support a 26-week program.

The facilitator guide begins with a comprehensive overview of the program, including discussions of its philosophy, design, and theoretical framework, as well as implementation strategies and tips for retention. The guide progresses in tandem with the curriculum, providing facilitators with step-by-step instructions, suggested timeframes, and key strategies so they can confidently and competently lead participants through each lesson and each critical stage of intervention and recovery.

At the end of each lesson, Facilitator Helps sections provides suggestions for how to explain specific parts of the lesson, references to helpful websites for further research and knowledge building, and cautions about potential issues that may arise during group discussions.

Another Way...Choosing to Change is an exemplary curriculum to rehabilitate domestic violence offenders and, in doing so, increase safety and empathy for victims of violence.
