Re-Visioning Men’s Anger, Rage & Violence is based on trauma-informed research examining the links between male childhood abuse and intimate partner violence (IPV). While many practitioners are aware that most men who are prone to rage and partner violence have a significant history of childhood abuse, few intervention programs are derived from this research and application.
This training focuses on the clinical implications of adopting a trauma-oriented understanding of IPV. We will fearlessly challenge the dominant discourse of “power and control” model of understanding through comprehensive picture of the inner world of men who are assaultive. Using a trauma lens, Re-Visioning arguably offers a more nuanced, more respectful and more promising approach to clinical interventions with this population, whether through individual or group intervention.
