The Alternatives to Violence program is based on the belief that each person is accountable for his/her
actions and that change can occur through the introduction of new ideas, development of practical
skills, and through the support of others. This program meets the certification requirements of the
Virginia Batterer Intervention Programs thru the VBICB.
This program meets once a week for a minimum of eighteen weeks. Current groups are provided from 6-8 pm on Mondays and Tuesdays in English and on Thursdays in Spanish. Once assigned a particular night of the week, a participant always remains on that same night of the week unless a permanent change is necessary. All groups are conducted in an open group format which means that new participants may join the group as space becomes available. This permits group members at different stages of change to support each other with new perspectives and insights.
Over the course of the eighteen weeks, the following topics will be discussed and related skills will be introduced and practiced:
The total cost of the program is $425 of which $100 is due at the intake assessment. The rest of the program fee is paid while attending. Change in Action accepts cash or money orders. If necessary, credit card payments may be made but there is a 5% fee associated with these payments to cover bank fees.
Each person interested in registering for our classes, must complete a face-to-face intake. These appointments are scheduled on the day that the participant is to begin the classes. We do not accept walk-in appointments. To schedule an intake call 571.379.0352.
