Breaking Chains ~ Battering Intervention & Prevention Program
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 healthy, nonviolent relationships. Although BIPPs work directly with offenders, the underlying goal of these programs is to enhance the safety of family violence victims and their children. Optimally, BIPPs also challenge ingrained beliefs on patriarchy and entitlement. BIPPs 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. BIPPs should be an integral part of a coordinated community response to end family violence across Texas.
