Individual therapeutic care

Sandrine Pires in fact recalled in the preamble the history of the CPCAs in the Centre-Val de Loire region as well as the organization of the system which results in the individual therapeutic care perpetrators of domestic violence as well as the establishment of discussion groups.

The primary objective of this branch is the protection of victims by putting in place a system to avoid repeat offenses, by helping them understand and understand the origins of the act. The idea being to get out of this circle and find out why this action could have taken place.

The president of the court also returned to the notable developments in the victims’ efforts. It appears that today “victims speak more, they reveal the facts and have less fear of pushing open the door of a police station. Network professionals are better supported and better trained, but there is still a long way ahead of us,” she summarizes.

A long way because the figures for domestic violence are indeed not good, they are on the rise.

The public prosecutor, Frédéric Chevallier, traced the genesis of these actions which find their foundations in practices from another age:

It is abnormal for a man to hit a woman. There has been total disrespect since the dawn of time with a long delay to catch up in this area… The launch of such an antenna is qualitative support in connection with the Penitentiary Integration and Probation Service and with the complementarity of the Assoedy association.

“He who hits, he who leaves”

It is an additional “brick” in the course greeted the prosecutor, but it still remains to be able to “ offer missing accommodation », because “the one who hits is the one who leaves” underlined Frédéric Chevallier.

Mathilde Haulon detailed the importance of this networking “because to tackle the cause of the problem the CPCA and the SPIP are part of all the networks of protection of victims, to combat sexual and domestic gender-based violence, which can be coordinated at the department level to avoid recurrence and taking action. »

There is also in this network the local victim assistance committee which allows us to refine this departmental strategy and then there are also networks that I can coordinate at the district level by field actors who also work against recidivism and work hand in hand.

13,000 perpetrators of violence referred to CPCAs nationwide

In figures, at the national level, there are around thirty CPCAs and, in 2022, more than 13,000 authors have been referred to these centers.

This therefore makes it possible to have a territorial network on a hexagonal scale with these CPCAs divided into departmental branches.

Individual therapeutic interviews take place two Wednesdays per month at the Point Justice de Chartres 5, rue du Dr Michel-Gibert.

Secondly, the CPCA will also develop support groups.

Note that, in the centers, “on average 85 to 90% of orientations are linked to judicial control prior to the hearing, and around 10% come spontaneously in a voluntary approach » explains Daniel Leitao Louro, director of the Assoedy association.
