Prison-Based BIP Work
Building Responsible Individualized Dynamics Gaining Essential Safety (BRIDGES) is a model of intervention for programming that is time-limited within a jail or prison. This is a model that includes a psycho-educational format along with a style of participatory group work. This curriculum will also fit well with the community-based programs and will prepare the participants to fully and rapidly engage in these programs.
Meridians for Incarcerated Women is a 20-session gender-informed, evidence-based support and intervention program for women who have experienced, perpetrated, survived, and/or witnessed domestic violence. The skills-based program provides women the unique opportunity to reflect upon their past as they make choices for violence-free futures.
