Battering Intervention and Prevention Programs

Battering Intervention and Prevention Programs (BIPPs) consist of groups for family violence offenders, in which offenders are held accountable for past abusive behavior and taught the fundamentals of leading a nonviolent lifestyle. Although BIPPs work directly with offenders, the underlying goal of these programs is to enhance the safety of battered women and their children. BIP Programs should be an integral part of a coordinated community response to end family violence across Texas.

Battering Intervention and Prevention Programs provide a designated criminal justice response to family violence that is an economical alternative to incarceration and provides an extension of supervision for family violence offenders. Optimally, BIPPs not only enhance the safety of victims and hold batterers accountable for their abusive behaviors, but also challenge ingrained beliefs on patriarchy and entitlement.
