ABIP was organized in 1989. ABIP’s membership is committed to dealing with domestic violence issues related to counseling, education training, networking, and legislation changes.
We believe that domestic violence is a crime. It is a complex problem with roots in an oppressively hierarchical, violence-accepting society. Batterers’ intervention focuses on the safety of those who have been battered on the responsibility of the batterer and on the need to change controlling and abusive attitudes and behavioral choices. We work with the cooperation of law enforcement, the medical profession, shelters, probation, parole and other treatment agencies. We hope to achieve our primary goals and, in the process, to reduce recidivism.
The dialogue among group facilitators enables members to be updated regularly about new legislation and new literature. Facilitators share intervention skills, research findings and explore local issues. This kind of involvement and support helps prevent burnout and helps keep us in touch with the larger community. We offer case presentations, consult, specialized trainings, and provide a forum to discuss the particularly difficult issues and situations that can arise when working in the field of domestic violence.
We offer one hour of continuing education credit on a DV-related topic during the second hour of our meetings that can be applied to your required 16 hours per year of CEUs. There is a nominal fee.
