Domestic Abuse Project will create a Young Men's Group for boys ages 13-18 years old who have used abusive behavior towards a dating partner and/or family member. Existing services miss this group, as they are either for adult perpetuators or youth victim/survivors. The existence of this group will allow for targeted and developmentally appropriate intervention to end the use of abusive behaviors by young men by incorporating new research on trauma, theoretical foundations, clients’ experiences of oppression, as well as environmental stressors.
