This paper describes a systemic approach to working with domestic violence which does not focus upon couple therapy but rather adapts the Duluth 'co-ordinated community response' model.

Batterer intervention programs (BIPs) are a central criminal justice response to men charged for violence against their partners. However, whether or not to offer treatment conjointly to men who are not court mandated to treatment as well as men mandated to attend remains a question. A narrative therapy BIP, “Responsible Choices for Men” (RCM), has been offered at the Calgary Counselling Centre for over 25 years. The demographics of the 964 men, 759 referred by Calgary’s specialized domestic violence courts and 205 who were non-court-mandated and outcomes for both groups after RCM program completion are presented. Treatment outcomes (N = 694) were assessed using the Psychological Assessment Screener (PAS), Outcome Questionnaire (OQ-45), Index of Clinical Stress (ICS), Rosenberg Self-Esteem Inventory, Relationship Beliefs Scale and the Generalized Contentment Scale (GCS), all adjusted for social desirability. Some demographic features differentiated the groups but both mandated and non-court-mandated men significantly improved after the RCM program with small to medium effect sizes. Practice and policy implications are discussed.

Historically, violence prevention work has been driven by and focused on women. Women still need to be center stage in terms of empowerment, equality and safety. There is a strong potential in work with men in local religious and cultural institutions. Teachers, health care personels, polices, soldiers, imams, priests, monks and local civic leaders wield broad influence, can serve as positive non-violent role models and can make the connections between local beliefs and more peaceful homes and communities.

ÖZET Makale, ataerkil toplumsal yapının ve toplumdaki eşitsiz ilişkilerin, kadınların yurttaşlık hakları, şiddete uğrayan kadın ve şiddet uygulayan erkekle ilgili olarak gerçekleştirilen çalışmalarla yeniden üretilebileceği kaygısı ile kaleme alınmıştır. Bu kaygının yok olmasında ise, eşitlik ve özgürlük adına geliştirilecek yeni, yaratıcı ve eleştirel düşünce yapılarını güçlendirmenin önemli olduğu düşünülmektedir. Bu doğrultuda, çalışma sadece yeni ve eleştirel bir bakış açısı sağlayabileceği düşüncesi ile, kadına karşı şiddeti önlemeye yönelik olarak sosyal hizmet mesleğinin gerçekleştirdiği uygulamalarda önemli olan/olabilecek noktaları, anarko-feminist bir süzgeçten geçirerek değerlendirmeyi amaçlamaktadır. Anahtar Sözcükler: anarko-feminizm, kadına yönelik şiddetle mücadelede sosyal hizmet ABSTRACT The article is written upon the concern that patriarchic social structure and the unequal relationships appearing in the society may be reproduced as a result of the studies carried out concerning the citizenship rights of women, men using violence and women being exposed to violence. Concerning the elimination of this concern, it is believed that it is crucial to strengthen the development of new, creative and critical frames of thought for the sake of equality and freedom. Within this context, this study, in the belief that it can ensure a new and critical perspective, just aims at evaluating the points that are/ can be important in the social work practice to eliminate violence against women, by applying an anarcho-feminist framework. Key Words: anarcho-feminism, social work practice in the struggle with violence against women

In den letzten Jahren ist das Beratungsangebot für Frauen und Männer, die in ihren Beziehungen Gewalt erlebt haben, zunehmend vielfältiger geworden. Dies betrifft auch die Frauenhauslandschaft: In den letzten Jahren sind auch im deutschsprachigen Raum Angebote entwickelt worden, die mit systemischen Beratungskonzepten arbeiten und sich dabei unter anderem an Angeboten orientieren, die sich im europäischen Ausland bereits bewährt haben, so z. B. die niederländischen Oranje Huizen.

Family therapy is increasingly recognised as one of the evidence based psychotherapies. In contemporary therapeutic practice, family therapy is helpful across the age span and for distress caused by family conflict, trauma and mental health difficulties. Because of this, many psychotherapists integrate elements of family therapy within their approaches. Family Therapy: 100 Key Points and Techniques provides a concise and jargon-free guide to 100 of the fundamental ideas and techniques of this approach. Divided into helpful sections, it covers: Family therapy theory. Essential family therapy practice. Using family therapy techniques. Common challenges in family therapy. Contemporary debates and issues. Self issues for family therapists. Family Therapy: 100 Key Points and Techniques is an invaluable resource for psychotherapists and counsellors in training and in practice. As well as appealing to established family therapists, this latest addition to the 100 Key Points series will also find an audience with other mental health professionals working with families and interested in learning more about family therapy techniques.

A critical assessment of the research related to batterer programs with recommendations for heightened engagement of men, ongoing risk management, and better coordination of courts and services 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.
