Batterers Intervention Program (BIP)
Are you in an abusive relationship? Don't know? Take This Quiz
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.
Clients 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.
Most of the groups begin with the facilitator showing a brief video scene and then leading a group discussion about the scene. Each class meets for two hours or less. All participants are treated with the same respect and concern that they are encouraged to extend to others. It is understood that considering one's life and most intimate relationships honestly requires courage and hard work, and the atmosphere is supportive, and always nonviolent. While we foster a trauma-informed, and client-centered environment...Each person bears full responsibility for their own behavior.
