Violence against women in the home is a major social problem. Most published work understandably concentrates on the victims, but this book looks at the perpetrators.
Considering both feminist approaches to male violence and those perspectives that treat such violent behaviour as pathological, the author explores how depth psychology can be used to treat men who batter women. Examining such questions as how batterers rationalize their actions, and the nature of their self-concept, the book is a clinical study of the individuals involved. It analyzes the roots of battering in the male personality and suggests the implications for the clinical treatment of men who batter women.
It should be of interest to clinical psychologists, social workers and others who work in this area.
