Batterers Intervention Program (BIP)
Center for Problem Resolution offers a forty-week Batterers Intervention Program (BIP) for family abuse and violence which is designed to reduce the likelihood of future abuse. This program operates as one component of a Community Coordinated Response from the Elkhart County Court system, and other court systems of Goshen, Nappanee and Elkhart. CPR accepts court ordered referrals, or referrals from therapists, employers and clergy. BIP treatment is based on the Duluth and Emerge models.
