Other YWCA Programming

A Batterers Intervention Program (BIP) is a community program that makes victim safety its first priority, establishes accountability for batterers, and promotes a coordinated community response to domestic violence.

BIP is designed for women and men who are court-ordered to attend due to domestic violence.  Areas of discussion include:

  • Conflict resolution
  • Coping with anger
  • Developing healthier relationships
  • Building self-esteem
  • Trusting one’s self
  • Communication
  • Family violence
  • The effects of violence on children

The program is designed to give practical information on how to change abusive and controlling behavior by exploring non-controlling and non-violent ways of relating to others.

Several BIP classes are held each week at the YWCA.  Call us for more information (812-422-1191).

The YWCA offers a fitness program for individuals 50 years of age and older.  An instructor who is well-versed in the fitness needs of this population teaches the classes and bases the movements on the abilities of each participant.  The classes meet Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10 – 11 am in the YWCA gym and are suitable for any fitness level.
