During this time of “free” time we are going over our assessment tests for various situations. Wondering what other counselors are using for the DV Batterer’s assessment tools
This year, by popular demand, ADVIP will be holding its conference in San Diego, on August 29, 2020, at the La Jolla Hilton Hotel in the greater San Diego area, California, instead of Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

This year’s theme is “Perpetrator Treatment in the New Decade.” To get more information, and/or to register, just go to the ADVIP website, at www.domesticviolenceintervention.net, and click on the conference link on the home page.

I am pleased to announce that my Alternative Behavior Choices Program for batterer intervention has been deemed “evidence-based” by the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare, at: https://www.cebc4cw.org/program/alternative-behavior-choices-abc/
The Alternative Behavior Choices curriculum is currently used by dozens of agencies throughout the United States. The Client Workbook and Facilitator Manual are avaialble at www.JohnHamel.net. Just go to the bottom of the home page and click on the link at the bottom, where the ABC book cover is located.

For nearly two years now, I have been fortunate to having conducted numerous interviews with some of the world’s most respected IPV researchers. These interviews are available for all ADVIP members for free as part of our podcast series.
I would love your feedback on these podcasts. Soon, I hope to make some of them available on iTunes and other platforms, and it would be good for marketing purposes if I could get some endorsements.
So, what are some of your favorites? Please share your thoughts with the rest of us!

The 24th International Summit on Violence, Abuse & Trauma is scheduled for September 5th through September 8th, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in La Jolla, just outside San Diego. This is the largest annual IPV-related conference in the world, and well worth attending. I have presented there numerous times. In contrast to the International Family Violence & Child Victimization Conference, held every two years in New Hampshire, where our own ADVIP conference also meets and which is primarily attended by researchers, the San Diego conference is attended mostly by front-line practitioners, including BIPs and victim advocates.
Notice! Two ADVIP members, myself and Clare Cannon of U.C. Davis, will be presenting on Saturday, September 7, with preliminary results from our recent BIP survey, which includes information about our organization!

I was recently invited by the Association of British Social Workers to participate in a webinar on domestic violence prevention and treatment. We discussed a variety of topics of interest to ADVIP members. The approximately 90 minute webinar is now available for free to anyone who is interested.
