This project was completed in order to fulfill the need of the Alma Center, a local non-profit organization committed to educating men with a hi story of intimate partner violence. This author worked alongside the Fatherhood class instructor in order to develop an updated curriculum that implements current, 2 1 SI·Century treatment initiatives in a classroom-based environment. Research was conducted in order to determine the nature and effectiveness of batterer intervention programs, such as the Alma Center incorporates, with the goal of increasing awareness for these programs. The outcome of the project was an updated curriculum that incorporates 21st Century treatment initiatives administered in a 16-week classroom-setting. This curriculum is currently being implemented in the Fatherhood Classes at the Alma Center.
