Innovative Practices in Battering Intervention Programs:
How Can We Do Better?

One of the most common questions still asked about battering intervention programs (BIPs) is, “Do they work?” It is important to recognize that there is a substantial body of research, stretching over decades, that demonstrate the effectiveness of BIPs in reducing rates of domestic violence. It is time to replace the question “Do Battering Intervention Programs work?” with “How can BIPs work better?”

This year’s BISC-MI conference will recognize the legitimacy and impact of BIPs while focusing on innovative practices from around the country. The goal is to encourage attendees to examine what they are currently doing that works while continuing to evolve and explore what they might be able to do better.

BISC-MI is putting out a call for proposals from colleagues willing to share time-tested as well as innovative practices and approaches that they are finding effective. This may include original material or areas of expertise that are not commonly found in most BIPs.

If you have suggested topics or speakers fitting this theme that you’d like to suggest for consideration, please send us an email at biscmi@biscmi.org.
