Youth & Adult Batterers Intervention Programming
Youth participate in weekly group sessions for 13-26 weeks.
Adults participate in weekly group sessions for 26-52 weeks, and meet with a case manager or counselor individually to work on their relationship and personal care plan. This plan is individually designed for each client, and with each client providing input on their goals.
You do NOT need to speak to program staff to start, complete the online form and book your appointment for the link to class. Your intake screening will occur right after class unless you are referred by DCS or request a full assessment/evaluation.* Individual counseling sessions may be required in addition to group. Working with a recovery coach, and attending 12-step meetings may be a requirement as well
Drug screening is available for DCS referred clients
*Note - the term assessment is a medical related term and is not being used in the same capacity as this is an educational program and not treatment.

In compliance with IC 35-50-9-1, the Batterers Intervention Program (BIP) at Rose Project Counseling & Consulting, is State-Certified through the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ICADV). We help participants take personal accountability by using integrity to create healthier relationships. We offer gender-specific classes for both men and women, and boys and girls.
We provide support both individually and through group, however, to receive credit for BIP you must participate in the group. This program is designed to address the negative core beliefs associated with getting what you want through abuse or mistreating another person. Qualified staff will meet with you to discuss thinking errors that you may have never realized were associated with your behaviors. Additionally, we know that alcohol and other drugs increase the intensity of negative feelings, but we want to help you understand the triggers associated with substance abuse and its connection to violent behavior.
This program is an excellent option for anyone scoring at a moderate to high-risk level on the Indiana Risk Assessment System: Community Supervision Tool (IRAS-CST). We use Cognitive Accountability Training (CAT), which is especially suitable for those with an elevated score on domain seven, Criminal Attitudes and Behavioral Patterns.
Youth Cognitive Accountability Training, or YOUTH CAT, is designed to address student/youth belief systems that promote abuse in their peer and adult relationships. Students who successfully complete the program experience decreased out of school suspension, improve academic achievement, self-esteem, social competence, and family relationships through this prevention education sessions and collaboration with schools, local community agencies, probation and child services.
The program targets youth ages 13-17. The program is offered every Thursday at 4:30 PM-6:00 PM
