This course is 100% free because we don’t believe cost should prevent anyone from getting help with this issue. There are no hidden costs or future obligations, and we won’t try to sell you anything later.
We’ve designed the course to be intuitive, plus there is a tutorial video at the beginning on the course homepage and a link to support if you get stuck.
The course is an interactive, multi-media program that includes video, text, reflection questions, and a discussion forum to fully immerse you in your change process.
Because the course is all online, you can take it wherever you are, whenever you have time.
The course is divided into sessions and topics that you can complete at your own pace, whether you have 5 hours or 5 minutes available. You can also return to previous topics if you want to revisit something.
The course is designed to guide you through your change process from start to finish, covering 10 major units, over 100 topics, and 21 reflection quizzes on everything from avoiding rage to addressing communication issues.
The course is based on proven psychological models such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance-Commitment Therapy (ACT), as well as leading research on communication, trauma, behavioral change, motivation, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions
On average, it takes about 18 hours to complete the entire course. You can, of course, break that into smaller units of time, then return when it is convenient for you to do more.
See the “What You’ll Learn” section above.
Each session and topic builds on the previous, so you need to complete them in order. You can, however, return and review any section you completed previously.
Nothing. All our resources are free. We don’t want the cost to prevent anyone from getting the help they need.
No. There is nothing to buy and no catch. We’re not going to try to sell you anything later, either. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, so we’re not here to make money or sell anything to anyone. Our only goal is to help stop domestic violence and abuse.
It depends upon your jurisdiction. Check with your attorney or public defender to be sure. If it doesn’t count, we’d encourage you to consider taking our course alongside your court-approved program anyway. The more tools you have, the faster and deeper your transformation.
If you request it, we can provide a letter stating your progress in the course or a certificate of completion at the end. You can also download and/or print your answers to each reflection quiz, as well save the assignments at the end of each session, to show your progress.
Be sure to watch the “How to navigate this course” video on the course homepage. It should answer many of your questions. If you still have a question, there is a “Contact Us” link in the footer you can use if you are still having have technical difficulties.
Our focus is on helping the person causing harm (the perpetrator) to change their behavior.
Both. We know domestic abuse is not a gendered issue. Both men and women can and do cause harm in relationships, and both can be harmed.
Yes. Domestic abuse affects people from all walks of life and is not specific to any gender or sexual orientation. We’ve taken care to make sure the course speaks to everyone, no matter their identity.
Yes. We help people stop hurtful behavior–whether it is emotional or physical abuse. We find that both have the same root cause, so therefore the solution is the same.
Absolutely. Mutual abuse is present in 40-60% of abusive relationships. We focus on what each individual needs to do to “clean up their side of the street”. We also talk about how to best respond when your partner is being difficult so you are not making the situation worse.
We share evidence-based concepts designed to help people who want to stop harming the ones they love. This includes psychological models like CBT and ACT, as well as other tools and techniques shown to improve emotional control and maintain successful relationships.
Both are good options and cover similar content. This course is great if you prefer working by yourself at your own pace, or if our group meetings don’t fit your schedule. The 10-week Group experience is best if you like learning from others in your same situation, or if you prefer the discipline of 10 scheduled meetings.
We always encourage participants to work with a good counselor if they have access to one. This course is intended to compliment individual counseling, so that each experience builds on and enhances the other. However, we do understand that not everyone can access counseling–in which case this course should still provide you with a solid foundation for your change journey.
