Dr. Gondolf’s subsequent book, The Future of Batterer Programs: Reassessing Evidence-Based Practice (2012), addresses the debate over the research on batterer programs and the means to improving their effectiveness, and his most recent book, Gender-Based Perspectives on Batterer Programs: Program Leaders on History, Approach, Research, and Development (2015) compiles the experience and insights of 24 batterer program leaders on program effectiveness and direction.  He has also authored over 150 academic journal articles and 11 books on domestic violence intervention and related topics.

Join us for an interactive training event where we will do a deep dive into connecting our understanding of domestic violence dynamics to our BIPP facilitation techniques. This training will consider how men describe their relationships in BIPP group discussions in contrast with what we know about survivor experiences. We will also consider current BIPP practices and discuss how our work can be more survivor centered while also maintaining rapport and supportive men’s engagement.  This training is designed for BIPP facilitators of all levels.
