ADVIP Podcasts

Since the advent of intimate partner violence perpetrator treatment programs, also known as BIPs, in the late 1970’s, a wealth of clinical and research knowledge has been accumulated. Unfortunately, until the creation of the Association of Domestic Violence Programs, front-line treatment providers and research scholars lacked a common place where they could share information and experience in order to advance evidence-based practice and lower rates of IPV in our communities. We now offer, in addition to our blog pages, another means by which to share this wealth of information, a series of podcasts featuring ADVIP founder John Hamel in conversation with treatment providers and some of the world’s most renowned researchers.  

If you are a mental health professional, victim advocate, policy-maker, attorney, educator, or anyone else interested in domestic violence, please enjoy the available podcasts and feel free to navigate throughout our website and read any of the numerous scholarly journal articles available. You may also want to consider joining our organization, to participate in our online blog and listen to all of the podcasts in our series.
