“As we await findings from a “second generation” of research on the processes that mediate the association between domestic violence and children’s adjustment (chapter 8 in this volume), help for distressed families can’t wait. Family interventions, including group therapy and parent training, have been shown to be both necessary and effective (Repetti et al., 2002). One treatment option is the High Conflict Family Violence Parent Group or Anger Management Parenting Program. In the remainder of this chapter, program features are presented, including case examples, for programs offered at two agencies in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area.” (excerpt)
