Battering Intervention and Prevention Program

What is BIPP?

BIPP is a course for men that provides tools to learn how to live a non-violent life and redirect current beliefs about power and control in an intimate relationship. The BIPP program involves accountability-focused groups that allow participants to take responsibility for the abusive behavior and learn the nature of family violence, changing beliefs and attitudes that lead to violence, and develop equal and supportive relationship practices.

The Purple Door’s Battering Intervention and Prevention Program (BIPP) is accredited by the State of Texas and abides by state accreditation guidelines. BIPP is a 24- to 36-week program. BIPP is not an anger-management course.

What is YIELD?

YIELD is a 12-hour pre-adjudication program which meets for one hour, once a week, for twelve consecutive weeks. It focuses on the effects of domestic violence on the family as well as healthy family dynamics and interactive skills.

YIELD participants must attend orientation, all twelve weeks, complete an exit interview, and remain in good standing with YIELD to successfully complete the program.
