The Use of Neuroplastic Change Principles in Domestic Violence Treatment: An Experimental Program
This article reviews a unique 50 session domestic abuse prevention program for male aggressors that centers on the known principles of neuroplastic change. Neuroplastic change (also referred to as LTP: long-term potentiation) represents how brain structures at the level of individual neurons, the synapses between neurons, and the networks of neurons that create actual behavior can be permanently altered, both unintentionally and through directed conscious effort. The author has designed and implemented a program which allows clients to create individualized brain change plans intended to lessen the probability for future acts of domestic violence. This emphasis also sidesteps client oppositionality by allowing clients to take control over their recovery.
