Summary

Pima County's (Arizona) Domestic Violence Diversion Program (DVDP) provides assessment and monitoring services, counseling and education, and support services to defendants in cases of domestic violence in lieu of prosecution and sentencing. After a defendant is arrested for domestic violence, the DVDP assessment is scheduled within 72 hours of release, contingent upon the defendant calling for the appointment. A second assessment session is scheduled within 10 days of the initial session. Defendants are given a referral to a community service provider who schedules the screening interview. Treatment consists of several types of services based on an evaluation of all information obtained thus far. The DVDP utilizes a level system for monitoring defendants accepted into their program. Level I defendants receive minimal monitoring and 10 hours of educational service; Level II defendants receive 3 months of monitoring and 20 hours of counseling; Level III defendants receive 6 months of monitoring and a minimum 20 hours of counseling, and Level IV defendants receive one year of monitoring and have at least 20 hours of counseling. When Conflict Becomes a Crime (WCBC) is a program that is part of Level I monitoring. WCBC is structured to teach clients a continuum of cognitive-behavioral skills which eliminate abusive and violent behavior. The goal of the program is to help each participant to eliminate abusiveness and violence in the home. (Detailed information for group facilitators is included.) (BHK)
