Specialized Female Anger Management

The Van Zandt County Juvenile Probation Department has implemented a innovative early intervention and prevention program designed to address youth who have committed or witnessed family violence, have demonstrated aggressive behavior or acknowledged their violent behavior and have a desire to change it. The Program is designed to hold youth accountable and to eliminate aggressive behavior and affect social attitudes leading to changes in cultural values that are indifferent to or support assaultive behavior.
