Understanding Batterers Better: Changing Behaviors and Increasing Victim Safety

Speakers: Danielle Thompson, LMSW, Kansas Department of Corrections, Office of Victim Services, Batterer Intervention Program Coordinator, and Allison Basinger, Kansas Department of Corrections, Office of Victim Services, Batterer Intervention Program Provider

During this program, we will discuss the different kinds of batterers, how they think and what behaviors they display towards their victims.  We will examine the post-conviction systems, and explore the interventions used to both help them change their battering behaviors and increase victim safety.
