All Batterer Intervention Programs are 36 hours over 24 weeks Fees: $50 Assessment and $20 per group session Anger Management classes are also available
Please note that Batterer
Intervention sessions are targeted toward treating individuals who are abusive
to those they are in intimate relationships with which includes abusive
behavior toward their children.
Anger management sessions are
NOT the same as batterer intervention sessions. Our office doesn’t view abusive behavior and
anger management through the same lens.
Anger management is not described as intimate partner violence and
intimate partner violence should not be referred to as an “anger” issue. The two behaviors are not the same.
For example a person who
abuses their significant other and/or their children is not having issues
pertaining to anger management they are having issues with battering and/or
domestic abuse. Please note the
difference. One cannot switch from one
to the other. It is imperative that we
stop confusing the terms for the safety of those who are being victimized.
