Bringing Peace to Relationships - Batterer Treatment Program
This 119-page MRT workbook is used exclusively with batterers—perpetrators of domestic violence. The book follows the MRT Steps and also has sections covering the issues of power and control.
Target Population & Use
The book is used with many batterers programs as the primary treatment method. MRT meets most state requirements for batterer treatment programs and is approved by most states for use with batterer programs. MRT is an NREPP program.
How It Is Conducted
The program is divided in 24 modules with each module completed in a group session. Clients complete homework for each module prior to coming to a session. In group each client presents his or her homework and the facilitator passes the client to the next module or has the client redo the homework based on objective criteria. All MRT groups are open-ended meaning that new clients can enter an ongoing group at any time. Each group session will usually have new clients as well as some finishing the program. All MRT domestic violence facilitators must complete domestic violence MRT training.
The MRT Counselor’s Handbook for Domestic Violence gives basic instructions as well as the objective criteria that should be used for each Step. Several other treatment tools are recommended. These include tapes or CDs that clients can utilize: the Five-Minute Stress Manager; Imaginary Time-Out. Individuals who enter domestic violence MRT training receive a copy of the MRT Counselor’s Handbook for Domestic Violence, the Five-Minute Stress Manager, and Imaginary Time-Out.
