The Domestic Violence Offender Treatment Curriculum is the result of Dr. Ronald Potter-Efron and Patricia Potter-Efron's clinical work in providing domestic violence and anger management treatment for 30 years. The combination of their experience and wealth of knowledge in the fields of neuroscience and cognitive-behavioral therapy has earned the endorsement of the National Anger Management Association (NAMA). The integration of brain studies, domestic violence and anger management cognitive behavioral skills, techniques and concepts provide the basis for effective treatment of domestic violence offenders. The curriculum offers helpful information on both power and control and safety for all. This Leader's Manual accompanies Participant Workbooks for 13, 26, or 52 sessions.
