Working with Domestic Violence Perpetrators

Phil Price, Programme Manager at the Domestic Violence Intervention Project (DVIP) talks about his experience working with domestic violence perpetrators. Their services try to work with families and couples to work together, communication, and try to understand how the violence is impacting their lives in a negative way and move forward to a positive, healthy life. ‘Our services are about managing risk, but also massively about promoting her safety.’ He goes on to add, ‘I think some of our best work is when we actually enable couples to separate safely.’
