We can't stop domestic violence if we don't stop the perpetrators and hold them accountable. This community mental health awareness workshop draws from both research and clinical experience to reveal the underlying tactics, behaviors, and attitudes of individuals who batter. We will look at the complexity of the battering pattern, with a particular eye to understanding how the abuser manages to be a tyrant at home while escaping detection by the outside world. We will then review research and case illustrations to show best practices for safe and effective interventions with batterers to promote family safety and hold the offender accountable.
