The Batterer's Intervention Program is certified by the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence and meets the requirements pursuant to State law for court mandated participants.
ICADV recognizes three core principles that are the foundation for any form of work with men who batter; each principle has a number of activities that ICADV sees as critical practices under the principle. The core principles of practice, in this order, are:
The safety of battered women, their children, their families, and the community as a whole are paramount and of critical importance in any work with men who batter.
There are two levels of accountability that are critical for BIPs to engage in: ensuring the accountability of the men who batter, and ensuring that the facilitators themselves and supporting systems are accountable.
In order to engage in safe and accountable work, BIPs must work in collaboration with local programs who serve victim/survivors of domestic violence, law enforcement, ICADV and others.
