A Conceptual Framework for Fathering Intervention With Men Who Batter

Einat Peled, Guy Perel

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter provides a conceptual framework that has guided work presented in this book with Israeli fathers. It reflects on the practice "dualities" that force them helping professionals to balance competing goals when working on parenting skills with men who batter women. It argues that intervening with men who batter as fathers is a challenging, delicate, highly skilled, and political task. A constant balance must be maintained between conflicting perspectives, agendas, and commitments. Previous experience in intervention with violent men and an ongoing reflective mode are highly recommended for those wishing to lead men who batter on this often painful journey.
