The Batterer Intervention Services Coalition of Michigan (BISC-MI) invites you to participate in our Fall Stone Soup Gathering on November 4, 2011 at the Okemos Conference Center, 2187 University Park Dr, Okemos MI 48864.
We will meet from 9:00am-4:00pm to celebrate the work we do and hear from our batterer intervention program (BIP) colleagues as they share favorite and effective tools and activities used in group work. The day’s interactive format will allow us to share ideas, think creatively about utilizing new interventions, discuss challenging issues, evaluate current efforts, and improve the work we do with batterers as we work on achieving perpetrator accountability and victim safety.
BISC-MI is able to provide five BIPSCC continuing education credits offered at no additional charge. Because of the unique format of this event, no specific MCBAP or social work credits are available. To help defer the costs of this event and includes a light lunch, the charge will be $15.00 for early bird registration and $25.00 for late registration after Oct. 25, 2011.
We especially hope that those who facilitate BIPs will attend; but we also welcome any service providers who work with victims, batterers, children, families or the legal system.
A special thank you goes out to those who completed our survey this summer and have been contacted and agree to present activities or tools at this BISC-MI Fall Gathering. Our survey is still open if you would like to add your thoughts, questions, or resources: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/biscmi_stone_soup
Even though our agenda is full for the day for presenters, we still encourage participants to contribute a tool or activity that you have found effective in your work. Send an electronic copy to firstname.lastname@example.org by Oct. 26 or bring multiple copies the day of the event.
We look forward to seeing you there. Help BISC-MI turn this Stone Soup into a rewarding meal for all!
