PIT was twice awarded a contract with the Santa Clara Probation Department to provide 26-week Teen Domestic and Family Violence Intervention groups to youth seeking to live a non-abusive lifestyle. Groups are open and gender specific. An Aftercare program is offered to help support graduates of our program in their efforts to maintain a non-abusive lifestyle.
Based on data research of the juvenile and adult criminal justice system databases,100% of graduates from the 2016 TDVFI program remained non-violent as of February, 2018. No new arrests or referrals were made to the justice system for intimate dating violence or family violence.
Groups address some of the following topics:
- Dynamics of power and control
- Nature of violence
- Tools and skills to prevent future abuse/violence
- Effects of abuse/violence on victims, families and community
- Building empathy
- Sexual respect
Please call the director if you are interested in learning more about our program.
