In addition, one in three women and one in four men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner.

Lutheran Social Services classes identify the nature of abuse, the complexities of relationships and that abuse is an act. These classes are to encourage growth and change within those who participate.

Classes will comprise of no more than eight clients to one counselor for healthy discussion and enough time to process topics and address life events.

This program is designed to change behaviors through therapeutic experiences.
