Violence Prevention Program
Violence Prevention Program (VPP)
What is VPP?
The Violence Prevention Program is a group based Cognitive Behavioural intervention for convicted violent offenders.
The VPP emphasises the need for violent offenders to take responsibility for their actions so they can learn alternatives to criminal behaviour, understand the effect of violent offending on victims and the community, develop skills and attitudes for a more personally satisfying life and successfully become a part of the community without re-offending. The VPP is run in prisons and in Community Corrections.
