Batterer Intervention Programs (BIPS) are community based programs for people who abuse their intimate partners.
BIPs were first established in the U.S. in the late 1970s, and as criminal courts increasingly mandated abusive men to programs in the 1990s they grew rapidly. Based on the number of programs identified in a recent study, the number of years they had been in existence, and the average number of men in them (Dalton, 2007), an estimated one hundred thousand men in the U.S. have been sentenced to complete a BIP. In addition to the BIP's listed, some of these also include other kinds of couseling and support available to men and women.
