Video Toolbox

Welcome to our Video Toolbox

This page contains videos we use in our classes, or that contain information pertinent to the philosophy we hold in ending cruelty in relationships. Some videos have been created by us, and some have been created by others. We hope this page will be a resource for those facilitating battering intervention programs, for those offering public education and for anyone interested in personal growth.

NOTE: We will be adding our exclusive Video Toobox Subscription Collection—videos produced by the Family Peace Initiative for use in battering intervention programs and training to help facilitators make the most out of each week’s group experience. Stay tuned.

Finally, if you have recommendations as to videos that should be added to our collections, please let us know. We would love to hear from you!

This video can be used to teach the fundamentals of emotion in your class. It illustrates how trauma and adverse feelings can disconnect us from our emotional selves.  This is a beginning conversation in the first section of our curriculum.  It pairs well with conversation about the ACE's study.
