You Can Stop.
We believe that everyone can learn to be in a respectful intimate partnership. In this program, you will learn new behaviors and skills with the goal of ending partner violence.
During your groups you will get the chance to consider beliefs that support the use of violence, explore the effects of violence on yourself and those around you, consider positive behaviors that support a healthy and safe relationship and examine positive and negative outcomes from your actions.
