This Training Is…

Next Level BIP: Around the country there is increasing interest in creating meaningful change in men who batter, abuse, and cause harm. This training will help you create or refine a BIP that is comprehensive, clear, and customized to your organization and community. This training is what you need to enhance your credibility in your community. This 3-day training is foundational and will provide an opportunity for the most seasoned facilitators to broaden the scope of their program and enhance their awareness and skills.
The Conceptual Clarity Model is derived from a deep analysis of a progression from awareness to the cessation of harm and the presence of integrity. Developing an understanding of accountability, so that program participants connect their actions with integrity, respect, and honor. By operationalizing accountability, we promote meaningful conversations and reflection about accountability on an individual level. This model presumes competence and the capacity to change for each program participant.
Based on the concept of “beginning with the end in mind”; we must have a searing and accurate analysis of the etiology of battering to effectively intervene with those who batter, abuse, and cause harm. We must fully comprehend WHY and HOW he has chosen to utilize this behavior. Simply knowing the right answers to this question is no longer sufficient. Having absolute conceptual clarity regarding the full etiology of this decisive behavior is critical to providing strategic and meaningful intervention.
Drawing on decades of experience in training staff, curriculum, and program development we will illustrate specific strategies and tools designed to augment and enhance the work you are doing with those who batter, abuse, and cause harm.
This training will explore the latest stages model of intervention programs for men who batter, abuse, and cause harm as either an integrated model or a module program. We will highlight the major components of this model along with implementation strategies that can accommodate anyone from a sole practitioner to a large agency.
Throughout the training, we will include discussion on building specific tools, strategic use of technology, documentation strategies, and building strong community partnerships. A portion of the training will be on identifying and building community partnerships, infrastructure and framework for administrative program design and function. This training will also focus on staff development, reporting, community relationships, and fiscal viability.
