Addressing Fatherhood with Men Who Batter: A Curriculum for Working with Abusive Men as Fathers in a Batters Intervention Program (BIP)
Addressing Fatherhood is a curriculum written for interveners who work in a group setting with men who batter. The curriculum is intended to enhance the already existing work being done in batter intervention programs or similar groups who wish to motivate abusive men to become better fathers (or father figures) and more supportive parenting partners.
Addressing Fatherhood explores the following four themes through a variety of exercises:
- Men’s childhood experience with their fathers.
- Impact of battering on children and their mothers.
- Nurturing, child-centered fathers.
- Respect, nonviolence, and support for mothers and the mother-child relationship.
Addressing Fatherhood consists of both a written manual for group facilitators and a DVD with four vignettes and a recorded 911 one call. The manual and DVD can be purchased together or separately. To preview the DVD click here.
