Professional Background

The Center for Child and Family Services has been providing Batterer Intervention treatment for over 40 years.  Our BIP program is certified by the Virginia Batterer Intervention Certification Board and all facilitators meet best practice training and educational standards. Our treatment is trauma focused and individualized for adult men and women.  Our intensive bio psycho social assessment includes an in depth trauma assessment as well as the administration of The Domestic Violence Inventory (DVI.) The DVI rates lethality and risk levels in violence, control, coping skills, drug use, alcohol use and truthfulness and is invaluable information that helps with proper group placement and proper length of treatment. The DVI has been normed on over 75,000 perpetrators and is in the high 90% for validity and reliability. During group treatment, that can range from 36-56 hours of treatment, clients are offered the opportunity to attend individual sessions to address underlying issues and past trauma with advanced techniques such as Eye Movement Integration.  The recidivism rates for group members who successfully complete our program is consistently significantly lower than the national average.  Those that successfully complete our program are offered the opportunity to attend free couple’s and family counseling.
