Our Battering Intervention and Prevention Program is a court-approved 24-week program designed to give clients the tools they need to achieve healthy intimate relationships.
BIPP classes are conducted in group format and designed to address and challenge clients’ beliefs that have led to violent and controlling behavior. BIPP is not designed to shame its participants. It is designed to give clients the skills to treat their partners with respect and resolve conflict non-violently.

Each class is led by a trained BIPP facilitator. A BIPP class may be led by a male or a female facilitator, or co-facilitated by both.
The basic structure of each class is as follows: Clients pay the weekly group fee upon arrival. Each class time has a check-in period where clients are able to share significant events in their relationships or receive support from the group if they are struggling to implement what they’ve learned in the program. Clients will review homework, if any, from the previous week. Clients will complete group activities/ exercises. Clients will discuss what they learned in each session.
There is a one-time orientation fee of $50 and each class attended has a fee of $30. For clients currently on parole, the orientation fee is $40 and each class is $25. Financial assistance is available to any client with a documented need. You may pay your BIPP fees online here.
Clients who successfully complete the 24-week BIPP program will receive a Certificate of Completion. Participation hours and program completion can be verified to the designated court or a relevant referral source, as needed.
