The New Mexico Coalition Against Domestic Violence is pleased to bring back nationally-recognized trainers David Garvin and Jeffrie Cape for a second year to train Batterer Intervention Program (BIP) facilitators in New Mexico (also known as Domestic Violence Offender Treatment Programs).  This training is based upon curriculum developed by David and Jeffrie.  Each participant will receive a copy of the curriculum at the training.  Registration Form at Bottom of Page


“I just wanted to share with you all at the Coalition some very exciting news.  I attended the BIP training a few months ago and recently took over our program's offender groups.   This program David and Jeffrie provided to us and we are now using to work with our groups is outstanding!  It really works! We have completed three weeks and the change in participation, attitude, input is absolutely crazy for the lack of a better word!…… If you provide this class again, we would absolutely recommend any and every agency dealing with offenders should attend, it is such a wonderful thing to see in just three weeks we are starting to see this much of a change.”

The full training is 20 hours, which meets the BIP training requirement for CYFD contractors.  It includes two 2-hour webinars and a 2-day (16 hour) in-person training in Las Cruces, NM.  The second day of the training will be an experiential group with participants taking turns as facilitators and group participants.

If you took the training last year, you can review the full training for a reduced fee or just attend the two webinars - which will provide a refresher in curriculum implementation - for free. Reviewers can click HERE to attend webinar-only refresher.

If you are new to the program you must attend all sessions, both online and in-person.
