dc.description.abstract This review serves as a tool to understand effective treatments for reducing the recidivism of Interpersonal Violence (IPV) perpetrators commonly called batterer intervention programs (BIPs). Results are presented in two parts: 1) a review of state and federal laws in relation to research on BIPsand2) a synthesis of research on the effectiveness of BIP interventions, including primary modalities and promising approaches...The review prioritizes treatment methods and modalities that have the most research completed to date. This includes group treatment in the form of a feminist-psychoeducational (e.g.,Duluth model) or cognitive-behavioral approach. The review is also focused on recidivism as an outcome,defined as new criminal justice contact (i.e., arrest, conviction, incarceration) for any crime including domestic violence. In order to situate the discussion within the complexities of both treating batterers and subsequently studying those impacts, variations in outcome reporting will be explored and discussed.
