Batterer's Intervention Program in Kentucky
What is BIP?
Batterer's Intervention Program, or BIP, is a 28-week program geared toward helping domestic violence perpetrators break the cycle of violence in their relationships, build empathy toward others, and create a plan for restitution for those they have hurt.
Often this program is court-ordered, but you do not have to be referred by the courts to enroll.
Participants are required to complete at least 20 of the 28 sessions in order to successfully finish the program.
Sessions may include the following topics:
Effects of domestic violence on victims and witnesses
Cycle of violence and other dynamics of domestic violence
Personal responsibility for domestic violence
Use of power, control, and coercion in an intimate relationship
The roles of alcohol and drug abuse in domestic violence
Constructive and nonviolent methods for resolving conflict
Parenting after violence
