Batterer’s Intervention Program
52-week Batterer’s Intervention Program
Approved by the LA County Probation Department
The 52-week Batterer’s Intervention Program is for couples who have experienced domestic violence, want to prevent future violence, and learn to have a loving relationship. Most participants have been involved in an intervention or have been referred by law enforcement, but these classes are open to anyone who struggles with this issue. The program is designed to help the perpetrator in the relationship identify abusive behaviors, unlearn those behaviors and learn alternative and healthy forms of expression. Participants in this program will also learn more about the impact of abuse on themselves, their partners and their community. Reports are provided to the referring agency, and participants are assessed on their comprehension of the material as well as their ability to put what they’ve learned into practice.
