Batterer's Intervention Program

All persons have the right to live without fear, abuse, oppression and violence; there should be equality in relationships and survivors of battering should be helped to assume power over their own lives; no one deserves to be victimized by assaultive or abusive behavior; survivors should be treated with dignity and respect; all people involved in violent crimes are affected-victims, children, families, partners, friends, the community, and perpetrators; offending is a choice, and perpetrators of battering are solely responsible for their behavior; these perpetrators must be held accountable for their behavior, and a coordinated community response is the best approach to eliminating battering in Grady and Caddo Counties.

 

Program Description

The Batterer Intervention Program is no less than a 52 week course of group sessions, which are no less than 90 minutes in length.
