The Mysterious Disappearance of Battered Women in Family Therapists' Offices: Male Privilege Colluding with Male Violence.
Kaufman, Gus, Jr.
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v18 n3 p233-43 Jul 1992
Contends that men use battering to silence women; that women, once abused, are unlikely to speak honestly in situations, such as family therapy, where doing so invites re-abuse. Sees therapists as rarely perceiving, labeling, or dealing effectively with male violence toward women. Urges therapists to learn to detect abuse, separate couple, and refuse to collude with criminal acts. (Author/NB)
