Domestic Violence Offender Treatment and Evidence-Based Programming

Evaluation results of domestic violence offender treatment programs, known as batterer intervention programs (BIPs), have been mixed, with the majority collectively indicating that BIPs are only marginally effective at reducing recidivism. Consequently, scholars and practitioners alike have called for BIPs to move towards evidence-based practices. One proposed suggestion has been to explore the integration of the principles of effective intervention, an evidence-based programmatic framework found in correctional programming, into BIPs. This presentation provides an overview of the proposed integration and what the future holds for domestic violence offender treatment.

Dr. Dana Radatz (Criminology & Criminal Justice), winner of the 2018 Arts and Sciences award for Excellence in Scholarship, will present.
