New Directions in the Treatment of Domestically Violent Men - Details:

For many years, the theory of patriarchal domination--violent men resort to violence to gain or maintain control over females--was thought to explain male aggression against their partners. Gradually, as this explanation has shown itself to be too narrowly focused, more nuanced and multidimensional clinical perspectives on male violence have emerged. In this workshop, we'll explore the many factors contributing to male violence, beyond a need to dominate women, including overwhelming stress (from poverty and unemployment, for example), substance addictions, childhood attachment deficits, a history of trauma, lack of emotional control, and brain injuries. We'll discuss how to use a multimodal treatment approach that includes individual therapy along with couples, family, and group counseling, and how to balance safety concerns with the appropriate couples counseling when both partners engage in mutually instigated domestic violence.
