Program Description

Batterer Intervention Prevention Program (BIPP) is designed to promote change through analyzing one's belief systems and how it contributes to intimate partner abuse.  Curriculum is used to hold batterers accountable as well as promoting nonviolence within these intimate and familial relationships.  Teaching accountability encourages batterers to use critical thinking and reflect on how their violence impacts victims.

Battering is a repeated behavior to establish control over another person.  A person uses battering when he or she believes they are entitled to control another and are doing so to bring about a specific result.  Battering can begin with an ominous look with the intent to generate fear and from that point escalates to physical violence and control.





  • To diminish the power of a batterer may have over the victim.
