The Different Faces of Intimate Violence: Implications for Assessment and Treatment
Greene, Kelly; Bogo, Marion
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v28 n4 p455-466 Oct 2002
Current research about violence in intimate relationships suggests that at least two qualitatively distinct types of violence exist. This new knowledge challenges the dominant conceptualization of intimate violence as solely a manifestation of patriarchal male dominance. Following a review of the research and analysis of illustrative clinical examples, a conceptual framework is presented that assists couple therapists in answering three salient questions: What type of violence am I most likely to be working with? How can I assess the differences between types of violence? And how might I proceed with treatment for different types of violence?
