CompassionPower Training: CBT for Domestic Violence

March 22, 2016 - March 23, 2016

$225

Strathcona County is pleased to announce Dr. Steven Stosny’s CompassionPower training will be available in March. CompassionPower is a cognitive – behaviour treatment for domestic violence.

This innovative treatment is a program that emphasizes the importance of compassion for both the abused and the abuser. His belief is men with abusive behavior use anger and aggression for temporary relief of self-diminishment caused by self-doubt, guilt, shame or feelings of powerlessness. It is Stosny’s experience that helping perpetrators see that the abuse of their loved ones violates their own deepest values is key to successful intervention.

 Pioneered by Dr Steven Stosny, the program has been conducted successfully in several States of America and in other countries of the world.  Research to date has shown offenders are 87% violence-free and 71% verbal aggression-free based on victim reports. Additionally, of those ordered into the program, 74% complete.
