These services are home and community based and are provided on an as need basis to assist recipients in coping with the symptoms of their illness.

 

BATTERERS' INTERVENTION PROGRAM

The Duluth Model BIP is a deliberate and purposeful intervention designed to interrupt men’s cycle of violence. The curriculum is based on the theory that domestic violence stems from men’s belief in entitlement which then justifies the use of certain abusive tactics. This curriculum is designed to be used within a community using its institutions to diminish the power of men who batter over their victims. It also explores with each participant in the class the intent of his violence and the possibilities for change through seeking a different kind of relationship with women. 

Multi-Systemic Therapy (MST)

Multi-Systemic Therapy (MST) is an evidence based intensive home/family/community-based treatment for youth who are at risk of out-of-home placement or who are returning home from placement services. MST treats those factors in the youth's environment that are contributing to his or her behavior, individual characteristics of the youth (e.g., poor problem solving skills), family relations (e.g., inept discipline), peer relations (e.g., association with deviant peers), and school performance (e.g., academic difficulties).

 

FUNCTIONAL FAMILY THERAPY

FFT is deemed a best practice/family-based approach to providing treatment to youth who are exhibiting significant externalizing behaviors. It is a systems-based model of intervention/prevention, which incorporates various levels of the youth's interpersonal experiences which emphasizes the capitalization of the resources of the youth, their family and those of the multi-system involved. FFT's purpose is to foster resilience and ultimately decrease incidents of disruptive behavior for the youth.
