This practical guide leads counsellors working with violent men through the specifics of the counselling process, instructing the reader in particular clinical skills, strategies and programme content. The authors present a group treatment programme as the treatment of choice but also describe individual assessment and counselling. They start by examining current theory and research and identify the most salient factors in understanding men who assault their partners. They then detail preparatory work, including assessment prior to entering a programme, and examine crisis intervention work. There is then a focus on group therapy with a detailed treatment manual, followed by an exploration of the personal and interpersonal effects of working with violent men.
