Batterer’s Intervention Program
- This program is open to court ordered participants only.
- The Batterer’s Intervention Program is a 26 week program; however, classes may be expanded to 52 weeks if required by the Court.
- Interactive classes provide information and exercises that help participants understand the dynamics of abuse, its impact on children, and how to initiate positive changes in their relationships.
Desired BIP participant treatment outcomes include:
- Exhibits progress in dealing with anger/hostility.
- Accepts responsibility for abusive behavior and does not shift blame.
- Grasps the gravity of behavior and does not minimize its effects on others.
- Identifies and owns issues and is not in denial.
- Attentive and participates in class.
- Couples counseling or family counseling with an abusive partner may be dangerous. These types of counseling should only be entered into after the batterer has completed the batterer’s intervention program.
- Anger management classes, couples counseling, or substance abuse counseling does not replace batterer intervention, and one should not be substituted for the other.
