Pathways to Family Peace is a non-violence domestic violence program. In 2018, Pathways began as an international research project to decide if offering a men's non-violence program for domestic violence is appropriate using videoconference software technology.
The program was initiated by Melissa Petrangelo Scaia of Minnesota and Jon Heath of Maine.
This "live" video-conference men's non-violence program option for court ordered domestic violence groups is now available and taking referrals.
Pathways to Family Peace uses the Duluth Model's "Creating a Process of Change for Men Who Batter" curricula and the addendum curricula entitled "Addressing Fatherhood with Men Who Batter" (Scaia, Connelly & Downing, 2007).
We are also taking referrals for women domestic violence offenders. For that group we use the "Turning Points: A Non-Violence Program for Women" curricula.
