Abstract

One in four women has been a victim of domestic violence perpetrated by an intimate partner. Instead of holding the abusers accountable, many victims will be questioned and ostracized for not leaving an unhealthy relationship, which shifts the blame from the abuser to the victim. A variety of Batterer Intervention Programs are available to abusers, including anger management, therapy, and counseling. One such program is the Duluth Model, which focuses on the transformation of batterers through a social change framework. This research will examine the Duluth Model as it is being implemented in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
