Relationship Development and Domestic Violence Prevention, Training, and Consultation

U.S. Navy and U.S. Army contract with RTI to provide training in The STOP Program!

The Relationship Training Institute (RTI) is very pleased to announce that both the U.S. Navy and U.S. Army have contracted with RTI to provide training in The STOP Program in 2018.

U.S. Army clinical providers will be offered three training seminars in The STOP Program to treat Army families impacted by domestic violence. This marks the second consecutive year in which three training opportunities have been provided to Army clinical providers and Army Family Advocacy Program staff throughout the United States.

Furthermore, The U.S. Navy Family Advocacy Programs have selected The STOP Program as one of the domestic violence treatment models for their worldwide sites. Navy FAP staff and group facilitators are now receiving training in implementation of The STOP Program curriculum.

The STOP Program treatment model, originally developed in 1986, published in 1999, and upgraded in 2006 and 2013 (W.W. Norton, 2013) has now been utilized to treat more than 50,000 male domestic violence offenders worldwide. The groundbreaking STOP Program-For Women Who Abuse (W.W. Norton, 2016) is now also being implemented in civilian and military sites internationally.

RTI is grateful to have the opportunity to make such a difference in the lives of so many families.
