Batterer Intervention Program Certification
The Virginia Standards for Batterer Intervention Programs are the result of a collaborative effort between the Coalition for the Treatment of Abusive Behaviors (C-TAB) and Virginians Against Domestic Violence (VADV). Together, these two groups built upon the work of the Virginia Commission on Family Violence Prevention to develop standards for effective batterer intervention services in order to ensure that the goals of victim safety, offender accountability, and community collaboration are the focus of these services.
Currently, The Coalition for the Treatment of Abusive Behaviors (C-TAB) and The Virginia Community Criminal Justice Association (VCCJA) work collaboratively as a multidisciplinary independent organization to oversee the certification process for batterer intervention programs in Virginia.
The BIP Certification Board is currently accepting new BIP certification applications. All applications should be sent to: Keith E. Fender, PhD, LCSW, P.O. Box 11713 Richmond, VA 23230. Questions should be directed to Keith E. Fender at info@VABIPBoard.org.
