Intervention for Men Who Batter: A Review of Research

General Material

"These three types of intervention with men who batter-men's groups, couples counseling, and community intervention projects-dominate in North America. Despite the growing use of both criminal justice and social service interventions, the evidence for their efficacy is not clearly established. This paper reviews the research on effectiveness of social service interventions for batterers. However, the effectiveness of these services must be viewed in the context of the other responses which may impact upon batterers abusive behavior. Because many men who batter come to intervention as a result of arrest and prosecution, it is important that services not be viewed in isolation from this context."
