The Batterers Intervention Program
The batterers intervention program (BIP) is certified by the Rhode Island Batterers Intervention Program oversight committee. BIP offers group counseling for domestic violence offenders who are involved with the criminal justice system.
BIP provides psycho-educational groups for batterers that address issues of: victimization and perpetuation of abuse, substance use, mental health, domestic violence, anger management and trauma. Individuals are referred by the court and legal entities (such as probation officers) in each region of the state.
