Domestic Violence - Working with Men

Domestic Violence - Working with Men

Research, practice experiences and integrated responses

By Andrew Day, Patrick O'Leary, Donna Chung and Donna Justo

CONTENTSEXTRACTSSUPPLEMENTS

Surveys suggest that around one third of all adult women will at some point in their life experience abuse perpetrated by an intimate male partner. In recent years a number of 'integrated responses' to domestic violence have been developed which are coordinated, appropriate, consistent responses aimed at enhancing victim safety, reducing secondary victimisation and holding abusers accountable for their violence. An increasingly important part of integrated responses is the delivery of interventions for male perpetrators of violence.

In this book contributions come from those working with victims of domestic violence, from within the criminal justice system and integrated response programs. They describe and discuss the provision of programs and services that are designed to reduce the risk of domestic violence amongst known perpetrators. Outcome data, theoretical and clinical issues relevant to program delivery are discussed in detail.

Domestic Violence – Working With Men provides a timely resource in the development of programs and services to reduce the risk of known perpetrators committing further acts of violence towards women.
