Reducing Gender Role Conflict among Men Attending Partner Abuse Prevention Groups
Schwartz, Jonathan P.; Waldo, Michael
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v28 n4 p355-369 Dec 2003
An intervention was created to help resolve gender role conflicts among men attending partner abuse prevention groups. The experimental intervention was conducted in two groups (7 men in each group) over the course of 10 weeks. The groups engaged in gender role conflict resolution interventions addressing conflicts between work and family relations, restricted emotionality, affectionate behavior between men, and success, power, and competition. The two groups were compared to a comparison group of 7 men who received the standard treatment based on the Duluth model. Significant differences were found between the experimental and comparison groups on overall gender role conflict and the subscales of Restrictive Affectionate Behavior Between Men and Restrictive Emotionality. A measure of therapeutic factors occurring in the experimental groups revealed that the groups' activities were associated with therapeutic factors that could reduce gender role conflict.
