Intervention Programs for Men

Understanding men’s use of force: A man’s violence against his partner is rooted in his belief system that he has the right to control her and gain or maintain dominance in the relationship.  

Groups focus on changing thoughts, behaviors, and belief systems that support the entitlement to control. The groups focus on men’s socialization.

Intervention Programs for Women

The intervention programs for female batterers are designed based on the concept they are both being battered and using repeated acts of violence against their abusers. Women’s motivation to control and abuse is rarely from a sense of entitlement to dominate another person; most often, they act from a perceived right to resist and defend themselves resist and defend themselves.
