In February of 2019, Bothell Probation Services launched in-house DV MRT (domestic violence moral reconation therapy), a cognitive behavior therapy for domestic violence offenders. This course combines education, group and individual counseling, and structured exercises designed to foster moral development.
Outcome studies show a reduction in the recidivism rate of offenders 30-50% for periods of up to 20 years after release. Re-arrest and re-incarceration rates can be up to 65% lower than expected.
Bothell Municipal currently accepts outside referrals from King and Snohomish County courts.
