ALL PROGRAMS AND SERVICES ARE VIRTUAL
We provide a Psycho-Educational Batterer Intervention Program for male and female perpetrators of domestic violence. Our program is based off the Duluth Model of Domestic Violence Intervention. We provide intakes and evaluations for individuals mandated by Suffolk and Nassau County Courts, Child Protection Services, New York State Parole, Suffolk/Nassau County Probation Departments, and other referral sources. We believe in a community coordinated response and will provide updates to referral sources monthly. We accept and encourage non-mandated individuals to attend as well. Our program is a minimum of 32 weeks for successful completion.
We provide a 12 week (Minimum) Anger Management program for mandated offenders and volunteers. This course contains topics such as: Identifying emotions, Healthy Vs. Unhealthy coping strategies, Managing Triggers, Deep Breathing/Relaxation Techniques, Consequences of Anger and more. Please note you will receive a Domestic Violence Evaluation during your evaluation for Anger Management. Those who are deemed appropriate may attend Anger Management after successful completion of a DV program.
We provide Mental Health evaluations for individuals referred by Suffolk County Courts, Child Protective Services, Suffolk County Probation, etc. Mental health evaluations take 1-3 sessions to complete. We ask that you/your referral sources provide us with all necessary documentation ( i.e. arrest reports, addendums) prior to your appointment.
We would like to encourage all program participants to continue to make positive changes following a completion from an Batterer Intervention Program. It is well known that many who perpetrate domestic violence grew up witnessing it in their childhood development years. At True North Counseling Services, we are committed to stopping the cycle of intergenerational domestic violence. This is why we are offering our group participants the opportunity to engage in 4-8 sessions of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and/or Brainspotting (BSP). Fees are sliding scale.
