DCF-DOW and provider agencies collaborate to operate abuse intervention or batterer intervention programs with the shared goal of reducing and eliminating the safety and risk concerns posed by batterers. Research indicates that when abuse intervention programs are integrated as part of a community response to domestic violence, it helps to eliminate intimate partner violence by intervening on both the community and individual levels.

These programs are funded to provide opportunities for assessment and engagement, and focus on teaching violence prevention skills, accountability, and responsible fatherhood. Abuse intervention programs are currently offered in 6 counties across the state.
