This chapter focuses on the Domestic Violence Focused Couples Treatment (DVFCT) program, which is the result of efforts over the past twelve years to develop and test a safe and effective approach to providing conjoint treatment to couples who wish it. DVFCT is delivered in eighteen weekly sessions in either a multicouple group format or an individual couple format. In both cases, cotherapy teams are used. To date, two overlapping assessments of the outcome of DVFCT have been conducted. There is enough evidence at this point to suggest that DVFCT demonstrates at least the potential to both decrease relationship aggression and increase relationship satisfaction—especially in the multicouple group format.
