Men Who Batter

Nancy Nason-Clark, PhD and Barbara Fisher-Townsend, PhD

Interpersonal Violence

  • This is a fieldwork driven book based upon personal interviews with 55 men connected to one batterer intervention group.
  • Most of the men that were interviewed had been incarcerated at some point for domestic violence, and many were re-interviewed every six to nine months, four or five times.
  • The authors also conducted focus groups with other men who were participating in the state-certified batterer intervention program the authors were studying, and they observed many group meetings over their years of data collection.
  • This primary data is supplemented by an analysis of the closed case-files from over 1100 men.
  • The men's accounts of their lives are told within a broader framework of the agency where they have attended groups
