What Advocates Need To Know About Batterer Intervention Programs

Friday, April 29, 2016 / 11:00-12:00 Central Time

Presented by: Stephanie Avalon and Graham Barnes, Training and Technical Assistance Specialists, Battered Women’s Justice Project.

Content: In many communities, Victim Advocacy and Batterer Intervention Programs (BIP) have little interaction or even knowledge about each other’s work. This despite both being deeply involved in the lives of people in chaos because of battering and dangerous behavior. Even when there is networking, victim advocates may not be familiar with BIPs, their strengths and limitations, how they work, and how knowledge about them can assist their day-to-day work with survivors.

This webinar shows advocates what to look for in an effective BIP, how to work constructively alongside BIPs to get what’s needed to do your work more effectively, and why a well-run BIP will potentially provide much more than statistics about long-term re-offending.

This webinar will also assist anyone working within a multi-agency partnership on intimate partner violence and sexual assault who wonders what offender programs are doing, and are unsure about how to approach them respectfully to find out. Please join the discussion.
