Treatment practicesHow must a program approach treatment and what must happen if it is determined that a participant should move into a different level of treatment?

Each treatment program certified for any level of domestic violence intervention treatment must:
(1) Provide forensic counseling, using evidence-based or promising practices in all levels of treatment;
(2) Require participants to attend weekly group or individual sessions, depending on their level of treatment and individual treatment plan;
(3) Use a trauma-informed approach in treatment;
(4) Provide treatment that meets the individual needs of participants based on their ongoing assessment information, motivations for abuse, and motivations for creating healthy relationships;
(5) Document the required cognitive and behavioral changes required by participants in treatment as cited in WAC 388-60A-0415;
(6) Submit compliance reports and relevant information to the courts or appropriate probation office when requested by the referral source or court when applicable;
(7) When increasing or decreasing the level of treatment of a participant the program must document:
(a) Updated assessment information;
(b) A change in treatment needs;
(c) Justification for the treatment level change; 
(d) Written approval from the program's supervisor; and
(e) An updated treatment plan; and
(8) When a program changes the level of treatment for a participant the program must notify the participant and the referring agency, when applicable.
(a) The program must document if the referring agency has opted out of receiving treatment change notifications and if so, it must be documented in the participant's file; and
(b) If the program cannot reach the recipient the program must document their reasonable efforts to reach them.
