Batterer's Intervention Program (BIP)
The New Hope Batterer's Prevention Program (BIP) is based on the belief that domestic violence can be stopped with proper insight and awareness of one's desire for excessive power and control over his or her partner or family. This desire is exhibited by verbal abuse, economic abuse, sexual abuse, or by emotional abuse, such as stalking, isolating, threatening, or intimidating the victim.
Our program is designed specifically for domestic violence offenders. The program consists of 26 - 29 weekly psycho-educational sessions, each 90 minutes in length. Participants are expected to discuss the information presented and then demonstrate personal insight by applying the information to his or her personal life and situation. This discussion is to facilitate awareness into previous abusive patterns. At all times participants are expected to focus on their own behaviors and will be held responsible for their actions.
