Synopses & Reviews
Changing Violent Men is based on the evaluation of British criminal justice responses and treatment programs for men who use violence against a woman partner. Court enforced abuser programs are compared with more traditional sanctions such as fines and probation. And qualitative and quantitative data are used to delineate patterns of personal change. This book allows the men and women involved to speak about their lives and the impact of criminal justice interventions upon them.
This book is based on the evaluation of British criminal justice responses and treatment programmes for men who use violence against a woman partner. Court enforced abuser programmes are compared with more traditional sanctions such as fines and probation.
Accessibly written and presented, Changing Violent Men is based on the authors' evaluation research of various criminal justice responses and treatment programs for men who use violence against a woman partner. It seeks to answer the questions What, if anything, works and why?
In examining the effectiveness of two court-mandated abuser programs, compared with more traditional justice sanctions such as fines, probation, and others, the authors provide: Detailed descriptions of the nature of violence Considerations of interventions with violent men, particularly abuser programs A focus on whether violent men can change Theorizing about the process of personal change among those men who do change their behavior
Both qualitative and quantitative data are used to delineate the patterns of violence and personal change and to give a voice to men as well as women speaking about their relationships, about the impact of various criminal justice interventions and about changes in their lives. Although the programs evaluated are in the United Kingdom, they are modeled on programs in the United States, so the book will have wide appeal to advanced students and practitioners in the United States, the United Kingdom, and around the world.
