Addressing Women's Use of Force in Abuser Intervention Programs

Research continues to support that women's violence differs from men's in regard to motivation, intent, and impact, yet most programs providing services for women who use force in interpersonal relationships continue to rely on program material designed for heterosexual male offenders.  This webinar will discuss gender-responsive interventions and a program design which will assist attendees recognize the evidence-informed strategies available to address women's violence. It is important to recognize the value of trauma recovery and the need for emotional regulation and cognitive restructuring to help the female participants learn to identify and employ more nonviolent options available to them.

Consistent with Relational-Cultural Theory (RTC), participants benefit from a program designed to allow for deeper connection and opportunities to develop healthy interdependence in their relationships. Evaluations tools used to determine if their thinking and beliefs about violence toward their partners is changing toward more positive, non-abusive conflict resolution will be discussed and evaluated. Facilitator approaches for understanding and handling these differences, which can impact the retention, engagement, and recidivism levels of the program participants will be reviewed and discussed. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Differentiating female abusers motivation, intent and impact from male counterparts
  • Identifying evidence-informed strategies for intervening with female abusers
  • Assessing measurement tools for cognitive shifts in thinking and beliefs about violence

This training consists of a 90-min presentation and 30-min Q&A to allow interaction between the presenter and participants in real time. 

Presenter: Nada Yorke, LCSW

Audience Level: Intermediate: Appropriate for attendees who have been in the field and have basic information on the topic
