Example text

Battering may be attributed to personality disorders and biological dispositions to violence or, as social learning theory suggests, to the role of the batterer’ s social environment during childhood. Attachment theory, a form of social learning theory, focuses on the interaction of caregivers with their children and the impact of that first attachment on an individual’s ability to establish safe and healthy relationships later in life. Batterer interventions based on this theory attempt to facilitate secure attachments between batterers and loved ones (intimate partners, children, and parents).

The cognitive- behavioral theory postulates that men batter because: • • • • they are imitating examples of abuse they have witnessed during childhood or in the media; abuse is rewarded; it enables the batterer to get what he wants; and abuse is reinforced through victim compliance and submission. Cognitive-behavioral interventions focus on “cognitive restructuring” and skill building. Counselors focus on identifying the chain of events that lead each batterer to violence, starting with beliefs and “self-talk”—the way we talk to ourselves in our minds (see exhibit 2-2, “A Cognitive Model of Woman Abuse”).

This study, when concluded, is expected to advance knowledge of batterer typologies. Daniel Saunders has analyzed interview data that compares treatment outcomes of graduates from a cognitive behavioral group to batterers who received process-psychodynamic group therapy. ” In Session: Psychotherapy in Practice, 2(3) (1996): 81– 93. , “Husbands Who Assault: Multiple Profiles Requiring Multiple Responses,” in Legal Responses to Wife Assault, ed.
