The Future of Batterer Programs PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Future of Batterer Programs free pdf Batterer programs are at a critical juncture, with a handful of experimental program evaluations showing little or no effect from the prevailing program approach. This finding has prompted calls to overhaul or replace such programs. Edward W. Gondolf examines batterer research in light of the push for "evidence-based practice" and advocates a progressive evolution of batterer intervention as it currently stands. Cautioning against the call for programs based on a "new psychology," he argues that current cognitive-behavioral approaches are appropriate for most cases, with the addition of ongoing risk management for severely violent men. Overall, he promotes a broader picture of batterer intervention and advocates better implementation of the basic principles established in the criminal justice field.
