Intimate partner violence -- Prevention -- Research, Intimate partner violence -- Oregon -- Portland




Batterer intervention programming (BIP) has shown up as a source of treatment for men who abuse women since the late nineteen-seventies and have since continued to expand. Research has been done to examine how effective these programs are in many different settings at reducing intimate partner violence, but little is known about programs specific to the state of Oregon. BIPs are used as an alternative to incarceration for individuals convicted of domestic violence: existing programs are based on the Duluth Model and Cognitive Behavioral Theory (CBT). Other modalities have utilized trauma-informed approaches, psychoeducation, holistic modeling, and risks, need, and responsivity (RNR) modeling. This thesis will compare a literature review of the qualitative components of other known batterer intervention programs and research of what is already being done in the field to the Allies in Change curriculum written by Dr. Chriss Huffine, based out of Portland Oregon.
