The Affective Component in BIP (Level 2) October

Our Level 2 workshop in the Family Peace Initiative Training Series. The Family Peace Initiative believes that a quality Batterers Intervention Program must incorporate an affective component into the general curriculum of a BIP. Emotional work can be powerful in helping hold a batterer accountable while creating a higher level of safety for a partner. Having the skills to help participants navigate their emotional world in a healthy manner is an important asset for facilitators. This two day, experiential training will explore the advanced skills of effective emotional work to increase the impact of your BIP program on those you serve.

**Completion of our Level 1, “The Art of Facilitation” is a prerequisite for registration in this training**
