    Domestic Violence- Treatment of Male Abusers

    Number of Pages: 5


    Summary of the research paper:

    This 5 page paper argues that jail overcrowding means that male abusers in domestic partnerships are often released early, mandating that other means of treatment be found. The writer further argues that imprisonment may only further anger these already violent men, and that the most important thing is to get them into treatment no matter how long the program is or the approach used. There are 6 sources listed in 17 footnotes.

Women who fear reporting their male abusers because of this possibility often  have reason to hold such fears. Womens advocates have made headway over the years, however, in disseminating the information that it is left to women to call a halt  to any abuse that is being visited upon them. But how effective is the treatment available to men? This is question that  Davis and Taylor (2001) sought to answer in their recent review of literature on the subject. They reviewed existing literature with three questions: "(1) Does treatment reduce violence
