Chapter 14: Men and Violence Prevention
-Chapter 14 only addresses IP violence against women by men.
-(Hamby 2009):
-Men commit 90+ of sexual violence
-Men create higher levels of fear in their victims
-Men injure and murder their victims more often than women
-Prevention efforts fall in 3 categories (be familiar with an example from each category**)
-Indicated (boys/men who have already been violent)
-Selective (boys/men at greater risk to become violent)
-Universal (targets all boys/men)
-Ecological Framework
-Microsystem an individuals immediate environment and those directly interacting
with them; (i.e. the home)
-Macrosystem -- a set of broader social values underlying the way our social institutions
are organized; (i.e. gender roles, income level, religious beliefs)
-Mesosystem links between systems that interact with one another (i.e., peers, family,
-Exosystem a set of systems that indirectly affect behavior (i.e. courts, prosecution,
-Chronosystem the time dimension over which all other systems are changing
Batter Intervention Programs
-Goals/Advantages of BIPs:
-Changes to DV laws in the 1970’s led to mandatory participation in BIP programs.
-BIP’s allow for monitoring and accountability
-Designed to reduce repeat violence (recidivism)
-Concerns/Disadvantages of BIPs
-Can lead to false hopes that participants will change misleading women to stay in violent
-May not be intensive enough to be effective
-Judicial oversight could lead to overrepresentation of lower SES communities and
-Do BIPs Work?
-Some studies have demonstrated positive but circumspect conclusions (small to
moderate decrease)
-While others have found the majority of these programs are not effective at reducing
-The majority of men that do participate in BIPs do refrain from violence over a period of
time ******
-Depends on what the study is measuring; therefore, mostly inconclusive/mixed results
BIP Effectiveness
-The strongest results are found using official records of police arrests and comparing
program completers to those who drop out of the program
