Family Preservation enters the new wave Family Preservationwe new way. For the past 75 years, as domestic violence and family problems have come out of the closet and become "crimes" it has come to the attention of the Courts, Therapists and Law enforce- ment, that families did not necessarily break up when family violence set in. Fami- lies just stopped reporting and lived with their issues until someone was badly beaten or killed. Enter the new wave--the realization that if families are going to stay together, why not try to give them some skills to make their lives bet- skills to make their lives bet- ter, rather than increase the likelihood of violence. One year ago, NO TO ABUSE, family crisis and child abuse center started the pilot of their program to help preserve the families through teaching them nurturing skills and re- sponsibility. The offending party is held accountable for their actions, but not con- demned for them. An inter- view is required to participate in this innovative program, and the class is six months in duration. Participants are fre- quently court ordered into the program for family violence problems in addition to any licensed counseling they may have to attend. The family preservation program includes all family members, in come aspect of the program. Classes are held in Pahrump twice a week, in Beatty once a week and in Tonopah weekly. There is no charge for the class if you are a voluntary participant. NO TO ABUSE provides an assortment of other ser- vices, including a 24 hour cri- sis line for victims of domes- tic violence, elder abuse and rape crisis.
