CDARS - Perpetrators of domestic violence Phoenix Programme

Community Drug and Alcohol Recovery Services (CDARS) have put together a programme to prevent and stop domestic violence.

A new programme for male perpetrators of domestic violence which aims to prevent and stop violence within a relationship. The programme has been designed and provided by Community Drug Service for South London (CDARS) and has been delivered highly successfully and with high outcomes for the last 5 years, first in the Borough of Sutton and now in the Borough of Merton.

The programme is of 12 weeks of offers both one to one and group work.

The weekly groups covers issues such as:

Circle of Abuse
Cycle of Change
Anger Management
Jealousy and Insecurity
Non-Threatening Behaviour
Respect in Relationship
Conflict Resolution
Health Relationships
Self – Reflection
Some aims of the programme are:
Improve the perpetrator’s relationship with their partner
Ensure abusive behaviour is not repeated
Develop safe, positive parenting and role modelling
Raise awareness about the effect of domestic violence on their partner and children

However the programme can be also designed on individual needs, circumstance and how people respond.

Due to consistent demand and many enquiries out of our Boroughs, CDARS has decided now to responds to these and open the programme further. Therefore we have decided to make the programme available on a "spot purchase" basis, which might be of interest to funders and social services, probation and police for example.

We offer a comprehensive package which would include per person:

1. Comprehensive assessment
2. Access to the 12 weeks groups programme
3. Weekly one to one face to face counselling
4. Telephone and/or online support as required
5. Intermediary report as required by the funder
6. Final comprehensive report as required by the funder
7. Representation in court if and when required

Cost for the full package as above. £ 1,950.00 inclusive of VAT per person.

We would be happy to negotiate for a tailored programme to individual needs, and related costs.
