The purpose of the Domestic Violence Institute of Texas’ Battering Intervention and Prevention Program (BIPP) is to help male batterers understand their actions and how they alone can control their behavior so that they can live without violence. It is not the purpose of this program to find excuses for the batterers’ behavior or to even try to understand it, although we will discuss how this behavior is learned. This program will teach batters how to recognize their actions, the effect they have on everyone around them, how to re-learn their thought process and how to control their behavior. If they want power and control, they must seek it over themselves and learn that they have the power to change their behavior and control their actions.
