The Abuse Intervention Management (AIM) program teaches effective communication skills and assertive behavior to individuals involved in domestic violence situations. The main goal of the 26-week program is to keep children and families safe and learn intervention strategies in a safe environment. The program challenges irrational belief systems and explores alternative belief systems that translate into non-violent behavior. Topics defined and discussed include:
Support and trust
Honesty and accountability
Negotiation and fairness
In addition to group intervention classes during the 26-week program, AIM also provides safety planning, referrals for other community resources and community presentations on domestic violence prevention.
We accept referrals from the Lake County Indiana Department of Child Services, Lake County Court System, Lake County Superior Court, Lake County Prosecutor’s Office and the Lake County Public Defender.
