  • Description:
    Batterer intervention programs are family violence education programs that “seek to reform batterer behavior through psycho-education, cognitive-behavioral intervention, couples counseling, or an assessment of individual needs and batterer typology.” Batterer intervention programs are often mandated in judicial sentencing for domestic violence offenders. In the 1980s, several states began developing standards and guidelines for these programs, and some states have incorporated these standards into law. This menu provides an inventory of state statutes and regulations that specifically reference batterer intervention programs or services.
