Measuring Success

Measuring success under a NOMAS Model in a community incorporates how functional the systems are at holding men accountable as opposed to how individual men change. The NOMAS Model for DV Offender Programs believes that the process of measuring success as it relates to individual change in ending domestic violence is both misguided and often confounded by patriarchal and systemic biases that corrupt the methodology. Additionally, funding priorities sometimes push for proof of program “success” as opposed to true hypotheses-testing.
