Domestic Abuse Prevention Program
DAPP is a short-term intervention program aimed to promote positive family relationships and reduce interpersonal conflict. Both parents and young adults participate in sessions tailored to their family role and the programs are delivered by local child and family advocacy agencies including CAPA. Each group is presented with effective methods and skills to increase productive resolutions for all family members. To practice applying these strategies, individuals take part in a number of role-playing situations depicting realistic struggles any family may encounter with each followed by whole group discussions to analyzing techniques used and offer helpful feedback and suggestions. The purpose and goal is to instill all participants with appropriate practices of their family role and encourage respectful communication to enhance responsible choices that increase chances for a successful future.
