Moral Compass (BIPP)

What is a BIPP?
A Battering Intervention and Prevention Program (also called BIPP) works with abusers to identify and stop abusive behavior. The WCET BIPP is called Moral Compass and consists of group sessions led by trained facilitators. The program is accredited by the State of Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

While BIPPs work directly with abusers, the primary goal of the program is to enhance the safety of family violence survivors.

Costs and Attendance
Our BIPP is a 27-week (six-month) program, with a total participant cost of $675. However, due to the pandemic we have temporarily shifted to an 18-week (four-month) program, with a total participant cost of $450. Each participant is required to pay $25 per each session that they attend and cannot exceed an owed balance of $200 to the program. If the participant should reach the balance of $200 owed, they will still be required to attend all sessions without receiving credit for attendance. During the length of the program, the participant is allowed a maximum of four unexcused absences before they are terminated from our BIPP.

Info for Referring Agencies

  1. Once the participant participates in the 1st full session, the next day or so you will be emailed a letter (for your files) to reflect that your referral is officially in the Moral Compass program.
  2. Every month, you will be emailed a progress report for your referral. It will inform you of the following: how much they have paid, how much they owe, how many sessions they have attended, how many absences they have had, their participation in group score and lastly their accountability score.
  3. On the chance that they do get Terminated from our program, you will receive a TERMINATION letter explaining why.
  4. Once they have successfully completed the program, you will receive a Completion Certificate and Letter of Completion. Further documentation is available if required.
