This counseling group is similar in content to our other men's groups, except with a parenting class interwoven within the curriculum. This is an especially appropriate group for men who have struggled with parenting issues, as well as those fathers who are parenting but are not currently in a romantic relationship.


Learn effective parenting skills and styles, non-abusive parenting tools, and how domestic violence affects children.


The hybrid counseling program is one group each week. The parenting class is 12 sessions, every other week, but the entire program is a minimum of 36 group sessions to acheive formal program completion.
