Everyone Deserves a Life Free from Violence
A key part of Project Turnabout’s mission is to operate a program designed to help perpetrators of domestic abuse or community violence. We believe that everyone deserves to live a life free from violence and the threat of violence. We also believe in the ability for individuals to grow and change.
The Domestic Abuse Perpetrator Program (DAPP) is offered for males, ages 18 and older, through one of our Minnesota locations.
About the Program
Our educational program is designed using the Duluth Model. We want to promote healthy alternatives to violence. We support the belief in the possibility of change through structured education and accountability of the offender. Suitable participants for this program must be males, 18 years and older. They must be willing to follow all program rules as well as willing to take full responsibility for their behavior.
Length of Treatment
- 52-hour Program
- 26 Sessions
- Meet for 2 Hours, 1 Time a Week on Tuesday Evenings
Goals of the Program
- To end domestic violence.
- Assure safety of partners of participants in our program.
- Teach alternatives to coercive, dominating and violent behaviors.
- To work cooperatively with the probation system, legal/justice system, human services, and victim service providers.
Referrals may be made both personally and professionally, with or without the legal system. We commend those who would like to make a change in their violent behaviors before legal action is necessary. Voluntary participants will adhere to the same program as court-mandated participants.
