In our work toward the elimination of domestic violence, our members strive to be a cooperative and integral member of each of our community’s domestic abuse response teams in order to assist in holding  abusers accountable and enhance safety for victims and their children.  

Our goal is to provide individuals who use violence with the opportunity and skills to change the behavior, beliefs, and attitudes that support their use of violence against intimate partners. With victim safety as a primary priority, the WBTPA provides standards and guidelines for certified batterers’ intervention programs throughout the state. These standards address primary treatment approaches and practices currently recognized as the most appropriate treatment for male domestic violence abusers.  

  • Focus on batterer’s responsibility to recognize and stop their physically violent and other abusive and controlling behaviors
  • Provide batterers treatment services in a manner which promotes partner, child and societal safety.
  • Participate in community activities which promote consistent monitoring of batterers, improve protection of victims and children, and improve the understanding of, and local response to domestic violence.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” 

-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
