Wife Abuse through the Lens of "Systems Theory."
Sprenkle, Douglas H.
Counseling Psychologist, v22 n4 p598-602 Oct 1994
Responds to previous article (Carden, this issue) that reviewed clinical, theoretical, and empirical literature on wife abuse and abusers. Argues that Carden's version of systems theory is too narrow and makes implications about causality and responsibility for wife abuse that would be rejected by most contemporary family therapists including those who consider themselves to be systems theorists.
