Most traditional parenting curricula 
seek to get the parent to “do something different.” Many traditional parenting curricula are inadequate to address the beliefs held by men who batter and abuse. These curricula often seek to get fathers to change their behaviors without addressing the underlying beliefs that support them. Addressing fatherhood with abusive and violent parents requires a process that seeks to change the underlying beliefs that justify the violent and abusive behaviors.

Survivors of domestic violence are eligible to pursue tort claims against their abusers, which could result in life-changing compensatory and punitive awards. However, survivors often have very little information about this option and no legal representation for these cases. As a result, they do not pursue these claims, are saddled with the financial burden of the abuse and struggle to rebuild safe lives for themselves and their children. FreeFrom is on a mission to change this.

Andrew and Jessica Klein’s book, Abetting Batterers: What Police, Prosecutors, and Courts Aren’t Doing to Protect America’s Women reveals a pattern of incompetence and inattention in how the criminal justice system responds to domestic violence. Their first webinar discussed the evolution of system responses leading to criminalizing domestic violence, encouraging arrests, and prosecuting and sentencing abusers. The author’s research points to a problem in commitment rather than the ability to do the job.
