Shifting The Paradigm: Strategies for Addressing Batterers as Fathers
The BISC-MI 2008 Fall Conference will focus on shifting the paradigm from blaming battered mothers to emphasizing the importance of developing programs and practices that promote and expect men who batter to be responsible and loving fathers. This includes respectful and honorable interaction with the children's mother. This cutting edge conference offers the expertise of nationally recognized faculty with over a century of combined years of experience. Presenters will share studies, tools, theories, concepts, books, and curricula to assist those working with men to understand the intersection between fatherhood and battering. There will be opportunities to discuss intervention and programming strategies and network with others who intervene with fatherhood issues and domestic violence.
DATES: September 17, 18 and 19; 2008 CE: MCBAP (Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals) and Michigan social work CEU hours offered. SPONSOR: Batterer Intervention Services Coalition of Michigan (BISC-MI)
