Professional Background

I am currently without academic affiliation, possessing a Bachelor of Arts from McGill University in Canada, and am exploring the possibility of applying to do graduate work in social work or psychology.

Since 1997, I have been an entrepreneur. For the last 14 years, I have trained and coached entrepreneurial women and men to create expertise-based businesses. Both group programs and private work include leadership development, emotional resilience, and conflict management. For some women clients, I also provide coaching for anger management, abusive behaviour towards staff, and emotional abuse in their personal relationships.

From 2011 to present, I have been involved in the creation and start up of a 501(c)3 called the Indrani’s Light Foundation (ILF) whose mission is to eradicate ‘gender-based violence’ (GBV.) The activities of the foundation are two-pronged.

(1) Internationally, in partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation and Population Services International, the NGO in Washington, DC, funding GBV work in keeping with the U.N.’s Millennial Development Goals.

On the ground in India and Trinidad and Tobago, ILF provides evidence-based, behaviour-change trainings called ‘Live a Brighter Life’ which teach boundaries, shame resilience, and self-care to community workers, NGO-staff, abused women, and schoolchildren.

(2) In the US, ILF provides ‘Caring for the Caregivers’ training to Women’s Shelter caregivers in Houston, Texas and in 2017, Portland, Oregon.

Training in both of the above areas takes place over half a day to, ideally, a 2-day time span for participants in person, however, an online version of the Live a Brighter Life course has also brought measurable results. To support scaling these efforts, ILF has also started to train trainers.

As of 2014, with new trainers in place, I have been studying research methods and conducting qualitative interviews of female perpetrators and male survivors, with the goal of gaining a more balanced picture of the field, and to determine possible future contributions.

For entrepreneurs, I published ‘We Need to Talk: Your Guide to Challenging Business Conversations’ in 2014. In 2003, I published ‘Multiple Streams of Coaching Income.’ In between the two, there have been other titles, all unrelated to domestic violence.

We do separate groups for men and women to stop the violence in their lives by teaching them a core set of tools where they learn how to move from seeking or demanding external emotional support from their partners and others (by being abusive or manipulative), to learning how to give themselves internal emotional support. We facilitate this by teaching them Emotional Healing. This allows them to move from blaming others for why their life is the way it is, to taking responsibility for what they are doing or not doing to cause their life to be the way it is. We also help them to identify what they are fearful of losing or fearful of not getting just prior to their violence and what they can do for themselves to alleviate that fear, instead of turning their pain into anger and violence.

Tulane UniversitySchool of Social Work School 6823 St. Charles Avenue Building #9 New Orleans Louisiana 70118 United States Work Phone: 504-862-3486
Professional Background

I have been evaluating community-based batterer intervention programs for 17 years, 12 years at Tulane and 5 years at the University of South Carolina. Prior to entering academics, I provided these same services I now research to men and women arrested for domestic violence offenses and referred to a BIP as part of a criminal sentence.

Services or Research Projects

I am currently interested in alternatives to the gender paradigm for explaining IPV in relationships. I have begun to explore the goodness of fit of a “psychosocial” model for explaining IPV in LGBT relationships as well as those where women initiate the IPV. I also have begun to explore the parenting pratcices of men and women court-mandated into BIPs.

Wendy received her bachelors of arts degree in psychology from the University of California, Irvine, and her masters of arts degree in counseling psychology from the University of San Francisco. Following her relocation to Virginia, Wendy attended Virginia Tech as a post-graduate student studying marriage and family therapy

In 1994, Wendy began her career at Marin County Juvenile Services providing individual, family, and group therapy for high-risk families in the juvenile justice system. This setting was the foundation for her focus on treating domestic abuse, anger management, and trauma recovery. While living in California, she also worked as a psychiatric social worker for Ross Hospital. The acute inpatient psychiatric setting provided extensive diagnostic, treatment, and crisis intervention experience. In addition, she worked as a therapist contracted with Sacramento County Child Protective Services family reunification program. At this location, she provided individual and family therapy as well as court ordered evaluations.

Following her relocation to northern Virginia in 2005, Wendy completed postgraduate coursework in marriage and family therapy at Virginia Tech.

Dr Robert p Cooper (Pleasanton, United States) Provider

Pvt. Practice Work 4625 First St., Ste. 140 Pleasanton California 94566 United States Work Phone: 925 830-3911
Professional Background

Certified by the Alameda County Probation Dept. in South Alameda County, I deliver services to adult, English-speaking Men in the form of two groups, meeting Tuesday as well as Wednesday evenings.

My doctoral dissertation looked at the Prediction of Violent Behavior which, at the time it was published, had few, if any, effective models which could discriminate between the violent and non-violent in any context. I sought in my research to shorten the period of prediction to a two week period as well as narrow the population reviewed: Newly-admitted inmates to a Federal Correctional Institution. Along with my Chair, Dr. Paul Werner, an article emerged from our work together entitled, “The Prediction of Violence in Newly-Admitted Inmates”, published in 1986 in Criminal Justice and Behavior. Interestingly, while unsuccessful in development of a robust model to guide officials in determining the “violence-prone” newly-incarcerated, the best overall predictor of inmate violence turned out to be the “average forecast of all clinicians” involved in the study.

Since receiving my doctorate I have been involved in Community Mental Health in South County, delivering a variety of services to the Tri-Valley Area inclusive of Drug & Alcohol services, Consultation to Middle and High Schools, and most likely launched one of the first Programs dedicated to serving Superior Courts in the diversion of male and female violent offenders. At the time, Anger Management was not yet a common term. I thought the Temper & Aggression Group sounded better at the time. Now, in 2014, it’s still called The TAG Program and, of course, still running strong serving both male domestic violence offenders (TAG-DV) as well as diverted, violent male offenders (TAG-AM).

 

 

 

Services or Research Projects

My private practice is located in Pleasanton. I practice primarily from a CBT platform, having received earlier training in a new psychoanalytic approach at the time called Control-Mastery Theory, aspects of which fit nicely into CBT, a more practical and problem-focused approach eventually becoming popular with both the medical as well as insurance communities. Well-researched and evidence-based, I use this model in both private individual and couples therapy as well as in my groups with male offenders. I am currently not involved actively in research.

Services or Research Projects

Clinical Services

John Hamel provides individual, couples, family and group counseling and psychotherapy to a wide variety of clients.  His specialized clinical services include a substance abuse relapse prevention group, family violence assessments (including specialized assessments in disputed-child custody cases), victim services and advocacy (including victim support groups), and treatment programs for angry and violent men, women, couples, parents and teens.  Although many of his clients are voluntary participants, many are referred from Family Court or Child Protective Services, or mandated by the courts to participate in either a batterer treatment program, or a parenting program.  These programs are available at several locations in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA, including in San Francisco, Walnut Creek, San Rafael, Berkeley, Oakland and Vallejo.  A current group schedule can be found at his website, http://www.johnhamel.net

Mr. Hamel also provides consultation and training for mental health professionals, batterer intervention providers, shelter workers and victim advocates, court mediators and evaluators, teachers, attorneys and law enforcement; and speaks regularly at domestic violence conferences around the country.  He is a pioneer in the development of the evidence-based, gender-inclusive approach to domestic violence, a newly-emerging, empirically-based model of research and treatment.  His trainings been praised both for their innovative look at theory and policy, as well as their abundance of practical, hands-on intervention tools.  Additionally, Mr. Hamel serves as an expert court witness on the subject of family violence, and has testified before the California Legislature on domestic violence public policy.

Research

Currently, Mr. Hamel is working on a manuscript with Gregory Stuart, Ph.D., and colleagues that reports on a study of motivation for physical abuse perpetration in a dating population.

He is also collaborating with Fred Buttell, Ph.D., on an outcome study of batterer intervention programs in Alameda County, California.

Two manuscripts are currently under review for publication in peer reviewed journals.  One reports on a new measure of emotional abuse and control, the Controlling and Abusive Tactics questionnaire (CAT); the other provides an overview of evidence-based research on domestic violence intervention programs.

Professional Background

I have been licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist since 1984.  Prior to licensure, I had begun working for the State of Nevada, Department of Mental Health and Hygiene.  I retired from the State in 2005, after 28 years of providing clinical and administrative services in the outpatient, residential and inpatient arenas.   In 1984, I was recruited as a contract therapist at SafeNest, a private, non-profit organization whose emphasis is to serve victims of domestic violence.  In the latter half of 1984, a batterers treatment component was added to the program.  In my capacity as a contract therapist, I provide risk assessments, assessments for appropriateness of services, victim services and co-facilitate male batterer groups.

I provide training to advocates and new staff members regarding batterers on a quarterly basis.  Previously, I provided training to Judge Pro Temps, Clark County School District employees and the Southern Nevada Housing Authority staff members.

The State of Nevada requires batter treatment providers receive a minimum of 15 CEU’s per calendar year, from an approved list of presenters noted on the State Attorney General’s website.

The works of Donald Dutton, Lundy Bancroft have greatly influenced me over the years.  I particularly appreciate John Hamel’s efforts to inform therapists and the general public of the latest research regarding domestic violence.

APPROACH TO COUNSELING

Therapeutic Solutions Inc. utilizes a cognitive-behavioral model of treatment that focuses on thinking, feeling and behaving.  We have a very practical, solution-oriented approach to counseling.  The first step is helping the client to identify the problem(s) in their life and then developing an action plan to cope with the problem and resolve the issue(s).  We encourage clients to take responsibility for their behavior and use a variety of self-improvement tools to prevent hurtful behavior and track their progress.  These tools include:  prevention plans, journals, positive self-talk, workbooks, art therapy and situation scripting-tapes.  We are firm believers that people are inherently good, but they sometimes do destructive and hurtful things to themselves and others.

We offer counseling services for male and female perpetrators of domestic abuse. We are a GLBT friendly agency.

We offer individual psychotherapy counseling services for just about any issue that a client is experiencing. We offer dual diagnosis alcohol and drug abuse counseling.

All counseling services are administered by a Masters level or higher mental health counselor. Our counselors believe education and research are an important part of understanding client issues so we frequently attend conferences and seminars to stay attune with new developments in the world of mental health counseling.

Professional Background

I have a Ph D  in social work from Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo Canada. I currently teach at the School of Social Work, UTA, Arlington, TX.

I have BIP work experience but much of my present research involves outcome-based work on batterer programs. I am currently evaluating a solution-focused BIP group in Fort Worth Texas. This evaluation is supported by Court 5 and has been ongoing for 2 years. I am also using a control group to measure outcomes.

I have also been part of a research team that developed YODA-Youth Offender Diversion Alternatives, an assessment and treatment program for youth aged 15-21 who had assaulted their non intimate partner. The program was developed in 2012 and completed in late 2013. Our team used a solution-focused protocol with a trained therapist to evaluate and intervene. Two evaluations have been completed. The program is currently sustainable and is an ongoing part of offender work with youth in Fort Worth.

E.A.R.S. – Effective Anger Resolution Services. Private practice Work 575 Lincoln Avenue, Suite 305B Napa California 94558 United States Work Phone: 707-257-3500
Professional Background

I am a licensed Marriage andFamily Therapist in private practice since 1976 and have a Ph.D. in Psychology.

I began my domestic violence program on a formal basis in 1981 and have worked with the courts (both adult and juvenile), victim services, and other community agencies since my licensure. I was a member of the Family Violence Council of Napa for many years.

There was no certification process when I began this journey. I was blessed with a local judiciary which actively wanted to have a definitive impact on this difficulty. We met regularly to refine the game plan/coordination for best services we could have in this community. I have been certified since certification was put in place; my wife became certified as well for her direct tenure in the program from 1998 -2008 and continues to maintain it.  I still provide groups for men in this certified program ( E.A.R.S. – Effective Anger Resolution Services ) though I have ceased providing womens’ groups.

I see individuals, couples, and families as the bulk of my practice. My history of work includes victims of sexual, physical, verbal/emotional and economic abuse, both male and female.

Services or Research Projects

I have never been a research focused individual. I am a therapist front and center.

Professional Background
As a leading expert on domestic abuse, Terry Moore has been interviewed on national TV and many times by local newspapers, radio stations, and television stations. In 2003 he was featured in the nationally award winning documentary Journeys of Survival; Indianapolis Responds to Domestic Abuse. It has been aired by television stations nationwide and locally by WTHR. Local airing of this documentary resulted in the creation of WTHR’s Shattering the Silence on Domestic Violence project which continues today.
As one of the original members of the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ICADV) Batterer Intervention Program Standards Committee, Terry co-authored the ICADV Standards for Batterers Intervention Programs. Serving two terms as Chair of the committee, he has been instrumental in designing the policies and protocols for implementation of the Standards and the certification processes.
Terry was the first ICADV Certified Batterer Intervention Program Supervisor/Trainer in central Indiana and was honored as the ICADV Batterers Intervention Program Professional of the year for 2009. At one time one of the largest Batterers Intervention Programs in the State of Indiana, Nonviolent Alternatives was founded by Terry in 1992. It was the first Batterers Intervention Program in central Indiana (and one of the first in the State of Indiana) to achieve certification by the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ICADV).

Professional Background

I received my B.S. from University of South Carolina-Upstate in Interdisciplinary Sciences (with Concentrations in Psychology and Sociology), and my M.A. and Ed.S. from Gardner-Webb University in Mental Health Counseling. Since graduation, I have been working for the Spartanburg Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission (SADAC), which is transitioning into The Forrester Center for Behavioral Health as we shift our focus to include more areas of assistance within the community. One of the initial areas we are expanding into is to offer treatment services for Domestic Violence offenders. Our program is court-approved, and is a certified provider of Domestic Violence treatment within Spartanburg County, SC. Our program is new, but I have an existing background in working within Domestic Violence, as I spent almost 2 years working with Safe Homes-Rape Crisis Coalition in Spartanburg, SC as a Victim Advocate both in the shelter and in the court system. I am excited about transitioning to working with offenders to begin addressing the issue in a new way.

Services or Research Projects

Our agency is excited to be offering group treatment offered to both male and female perpetrators (in separate groups), individual counseling offered to both victims and offenders, substance abuse counseling/treatment, and community referrals to improve the lives of the individuals we serve. Our services are available at flexible times and schedules. We hope that this program will only expand in the future, and increase our opportunity to serve those in our county and state.

Professional Background

We are a “Batterers Accountability and Advocacy Re-education Program”. Man Alive Sacramento Inc, (MSI), is a Certified Batterers Treatment Provider,(BTP), in Sacramento providing services to approximately 210 men and women in the public and incarcerated classes. Participants in the program learn to recognize their violent behaviors and the process by which they choose to do violence. We then learn and practice accountability for our actions, awareness of the impact our violence has, and become advocates, (take action), for ourselves and others to end that violence. We learn to recognize the gender-specific training that supports us to believe we are superior to others and that a man’s or woman’s value depends on how he or she controls their intimate partner, their environment, and themselves.

 

Who conducts the program?

           
Classes are facilitated by program graduates who have continued with training that meets or exceeds California Penal Code section 1203.097, for Batterers Treatment Programs. Daniel Thomas completed the program in 2007, and has since worked continuously as a volunteer or staff member with the Sacramento programs in the public sector and in the Sacramento County Jail and Rio Consumes Correctional Center in Elk Grove. The facilitators of MSI each have 400 to over 2000+ hours of training and classroom experience in working with men to stop their violence, and each has maintained relationships free of verbal and physical violence with current or former partners, children, or other family members. They also maintain 16+ hours of continuing education from various sources to remain in compliance with local penal codes set forth by Sacramento County Probation.

 

How did “ManAlive” get started?

     
The ManAlive program was originally developed in the late 1970’s by Bay Area men who realized their behavior had an impact (caused loss, damage, or destruction) on their partners, children, families, communities, and themselves. They sought the help of a victim’s group—Marin Abused Women’s Services (MAWS) of San Rafael, CA—to recognize what violence was and what damage it caused. Based on what they learned from MAWS and other resources, the program was then written by Hamish Sinclair, director of manalive in San Francisco. Resolve to Stop the Violence project (RSVP) continues to offer man alive in the San Francisco Jail facilities.  

 

What is “ManAlive’s” philosophy on violence and how men can stop?


ManAlive is based in the philosophy that violence toward people we are also intimate with is not natural or inevitable, but is the result of a formal and informal system of training. That system—which we call the “Old Male Role Belief System” which results in a distorted image of male identity and behavior.  The vast majority of men who do violence are not stupid, insane, or evil; they are well-trained in what we call the “Old Male Role Belief System”:

  • “Old” – because the system of patriarchy has existed for over 8,000 years,
  • “Male” – because the system rigidly defines male identity, which in turn defines female identity,
  • “Role” – because that identity is inauthentic, upheld only by dramatically pretending to be what the man or woman is not. We are also taught an inauthentic identity for women, and that he must enforce both his Male Role and her Female Role, or he fails as a man,
  • “Belief” – because the man is taught to believe that adherence to the Role makes him superior to those men that do not, and also to women. In fact, the better a woman fulfills her Role under this system, the more inferior she is, and
  • “System” – because this belief is ubiquitous; surrounding men 24/7/52 in their families, their social circles, advertisements, media, literature, music, sports, mythologies, religions, traditions, and more. Even men who never had a male parent in the home learn this system because very little alternative modeling is available. This belief also re-enforces that women are inferior instead of equals in the relationship.
  • MSI’s classes are set up as “peer group processes” style to create a safe and trusting environment where the participants can be honest with themselves and others in the group. The participants practice empathetic listening skills while holding each other accountable for the violence in their lives.
  •  The participants also are encouraged to get up in front of the class and teach what they are learning. This re-enforces the material in them and the group will often learn more from one of their peers than from an authority figure or a facilitator.

Professional Background

Welcome to my program Stay Focused Counseling, LLC! It is divided into 4 sections. Each section is further divided into 8 steps. Every step is an important and vital part in someone’s development in becoming a better and more successful person.

I have worked as a Probation / Parole Agent with the State of Wisconsin Department of Corrections since 4-15-96. A disproportionate number of cases on my caseload over the years have been comprised of probationers and parolees with significant mental health issues. I have worked collaboratively with psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and therapists, and other mental health professionals to supervise, guide, advise, and hold individuals accountable for their behavior.

At D.O.C., I am a Motivational Interviewing Ambassador. As agents, we are continually being trained on Evidenced-Based Practices and learning new and innovative ways to work with this population to address community safety. We use Carey Guides and BITS (Brief Intervention ToolS) developed by the Carey Group. SFC will use these tools to help you. I am striving to become a MINT (Motivational Interviewing Network Trainer).

In addition to working as a P&P Agent over the past 20 years, I have worked as a Human Services Specialist for 4 years providing crisis stabilization at the Dane County Care Center with Tellurian, 11 months at a Community-Based Residential Facility for a population of older adult males with persistent and chronic mental illness, and almost 3 years as a Youth Support Specialist at Catholic Charities in the Youth Living Alternatives program providing community support for youth with severe behavioral challenges on the autism spectrum.

I graduated from UW-Madison in 1990 with a B.A., majoring in Psychology. I took advanced classes in Psychochemistry, Advanced Physiological Psychology, and the Sociology of Mental Health & Mental Disorders. I graduated “With Distinction (Top 10%). I graduated from UW-Madison in 1994 with a M.S. in Counseling. I wrote my Master’s Thesis on Assessing Abuse in an Intimate Relationship. Around 2003, I created a domestic violence education program called Stay Focused on Healthy Relationships (which has been incorporated into SFC). For this program, I designed a tool to assist one in controlling their behavior called The Model of Self-Control. I am in the process of applying for membership with the Wisconsin Batterers Treatment Provider Association so I can provide certified abuser treatment.

On 7-19-13, I obtained my Professional Counselor Training License (LPC-IT 1829-226) which is valid until 7-19-17. I need to accumulate 3000 clinical hours approved by the Department of Safety and Professional Services and take the National Counseling Examination in order to become a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). In 2015, I completed an externship (300 hours) at Family Service in the Alternatives to Aggression program as a facilitator in a certified abuser treatment program. Lynn Gilpin, M.S., CRC, of Elite Cognition, LLC, is my DSPS-approved clinical supervisor.

I have applied to be a Comprehensive Community Services (CCS) provider with Dane County Human Services. CCS provides psychosocial rehabitiation for mental health and substance abuse issues. All of my CCS will be supervised.

In the Spring 2017, I will be taking 1 of the required 7 courses (I completed 6 of the classes when I was in college and graduate school) so that I can apply for my SAC-IT (Substance Abuse Counselor In Training). I am also seeking to become certified in teaching WRAP (Wellness Action Recovery Program) and a T4C (Thinking 4 Change) facilitator.

I will continue to build my program by gathering information and presenting it to you on this website. I want to help people stay out of jail or prison and change their lives with better relationships and and more satisfying jobs. I want to assist you on the road to success!

Professional Background

In 2011, I graduated with a Master’s degree in Social and Legal Psychology. My interest in culture and violence against women led me to the decision to investigate this topic and I have conducted a research on socio-cultural factors of violence against intimate partner in Portugal.

In 2013 I have undergone a nine months Specialization Course in Gender-based Violence. The Course was a great opportunity to acquire knowledge in gender-based violence, its factors and causes as well as  to learn more about the intervention techniques with perpetrators and victims of domestic violence. 

In 2013, I have been providing consultations on domestic violence issues during the  “Speak Out Against Domestic Violence” Campaign of AVON.

Since 2011,  I provide psychological counseling to voluntary and court-mandated domestic violence offenders. My work as a psychologist under supervision involves a pro-feminist approach along with correctional and psychoeducational methods.

Services or Research Projects

I am currently working on a research project, which investigates the cultural beliefs of Brazilian perpetrators of domestic violence and their influence on violent behavior.

My study period at Porto  University was mainly devoted to the investigation of socio-cultural factors of gender-based violence and the influence of the culturally prescribed roles and beliefs in the interpersonal conflicts. I have conducted a comprehensive analysis of the causes of violence against women in Portugal. This study was published in Bulgarian Journal of Psychology. Жекова, Н. (2011). Поведенчески анализ на извършителите на насилие срещу интимния партньор: Социални и културни фактори в Португалия. В: Българско списание по психология.№3-4, с.866-872.(Zhekova, N. (2011).

Professional Background

The registered charity delivers work with domestic abusers in 36 hour intensive, therapeutic, mixed gendered groups at weekends and has been doing so for the last 22 years.  With income of an average of less that £15k per year we have completed, 100%, work with over 900 men and over 100 women. Our completion rates are about 90% for men and 95% for women.

The UK is dominated by an accreditor, RESPECT, which, as you’ll have certainly guessed, is really focused only on “Duluth”.  No guesses for why that would be. All abusers and perpetrators are, of course, men and all victims are, of course, women: all research, of course, to feminist researchers. The last, Mirabal, £1.2m could find just 36 men to interview at time 2 from 4 projects running at least 7 programmes, with just 26 female partners also prepared to take part.
