The Allies in Change curriculum for working with abusive men is integrative in two different senses of the word.  First, it incorporates and builds upon evidence based and theoretically informed practices from a number of models including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, the Duluth curriculum, risk/needs/responsivity, feminist theory, and the writings of John Gottman, Terrence Real, and Patricia Evans, among others.  It incorporates these into a comprehensive, sophisticated and nuanced analysis of what causes and can help stop abusive behavior that provides a more individualized intervention to this work rather than a “one size fits all” approach. It does this by helping abusive men become more integrative--within themselves, with others, and within their closest relationships. It accomplishes this by identifying and changing underlying pro-abuse beliefs while also teaching additional self-awareness, self-management, and interpersonal skills.  It is designed to work closely with others who may be involved with the abusive man including his partner, the courts, probation, child welfare, mental health professionals, and others who may be providing his victim support and services such as victim advocates and mental health providers. This curriculum has been evolving for over thirty years with constructive input from dozens of professionals who have used it with thousands of abusive men.
