Paul* was ordered to our New Choices Program because he had assaulted his wife and exposed his young children to his violence.
Paul was reluctant to attend treatment and refused to believe that his children were aware of the violence at home.
At New Choices, Paul experienced a complete turnaround. He said he realized his children heard every
argument and his abuse of their mother. And he began to understand how his use of power and control was abusive toward his wife and started to use “time outs” and other techniques learned in New Choices to end his violence.
Paul continued with the program even beyond what was required of him, saying, “I’m glad I stuck it out.”
