Family Builders is one of only a handful of organizations in the Oklahoma City area to offer a 52-week Batterer’s Intervention Program certified by the office of the Attorney General. It is a 52-week group program as specified in the Oklahoma state statute. Groups are offered for male and female clients separately.
Topics include personal responsibility and the effects of violence on others, issues of power and control, beliefs that promote domestic violence, and tools for healthy relationships. Currently, groups are offered at Family Builders mid-town Oklahoma City office, as well as in Guthrie and in Yukon. Evening and Saturday groups are available.
