Cultural Models of Domestic Violence: Perspectives of Social Work and Anthropology Students
Collins, Cyleste C.; Dressler, William W.
Journal of Social Work Education, v44 n2 p53-73 Spr-Sum 2008
This study employed a unique theoretical approach and a series of participant-based ethnographic interviewing techniques that are traditionally used in cognitive anthropology to examine and compare social work and anthropology students' cultural models of the causes of domestic violence. The study findings indicate that although social work students and anthropology students share understandings of a general model of domestic violence, social work students agree on distinctive elements of this model that anthropology students do not. These findings are important in better understanding the role social work education plays in developing social workers' understandings of the roots of domestic violence. (Contains 2 figures and 5 tables.)
