Mary Helen Maley, Circles of Peace, says the program has been successfully treating families affected by domestic violence as well as mobilizing the community into action around this issue. She says issues addressed during the group sessions include negative behaviors, and other underlying issues, such as financial trouble, a history of abuse, or substance abuse. SMaley says a new element involves teenagers to help them understand and cope with the affects of DV in their homes.
