Domestic Violence II


Bypass political debates about domestic violence by understanding object relations theory, plus recognize the legal and psychological issues involved.

Program Description

The study of domestic violence has been politicized and disputed by feminists and family theorists. Treatment theory has rapidly evolved, with feminist theory and family systems theory becoming the dominant theoretical perspectives. Proponents of both models maintain intractably opposed positions and have experienced impassioned and bitter debate. Here, we present an alternative and a discussion of the legal and psychological issues involved.

Learning Objectives

Interviews

An Object-Relations Approach - Diane Zosky, Ph.D.

Diane Zosky states current approaches to domestic violence, which focus on the sociopolitical and the family system, can overlook the meaning of this behavior to the offender and the victim.

Protecting the Victim - Robert Galatzer-Levy, M.D.

Dr. Galatzer-Levy presents the first steps for a clinician to take when working with a battered woman and explains why many clinicians fail in their treatment of women experiencing domestic violence.
