The Restorative Parenting program leads men who have been violent and are fathers through a process to safely restore their relationships with their children. Through a group counseling experience, the program helps these fathers build empathy toward their children, and take responsibility for their abusive behavior and the impact it has had on other family members. The Restorative Parenting curriculum is being used as a stand-alone program or as part of batterer intervention programs and parenting classes.
