Intimate Partner Abuse Against Men

Prevention efforts often entail protecting victims from further abuse, which includes the punishment of perpetrators in an effort to deter future incidents and, in many cases, break the intergenerational cycle of familial abuse Pattavina et al. Not surprising, the research pertaining to domestic violence is no exception. Early criminological research studies especially when combined with arrest data, overwhelmingly support and strengthen this long-established cultural belief that domestic violence incidents disproportionately involve male offenders who batter female victims.

As such, domestic violence has been increasingly identified and acknowledged as a public health concern that spans the globe Drijber et al. The imposition of pro-arrest policies originated from the tireless efforts of crime victim advocates, mostly feminists, who demanded that police take action by arresting and removing the perpetrator, a male, from the home in order to protect the victim, a female, from further abuse.

Advocacy efforts considerably strengthened in the s when national attention was redirected to the outcome of several successful civil liability lawsuits, namely involving the case of Thurman v. The lawsuits, when coupled with the results of the Sherman and Berk landmark study, which focused on the effects of arrest on domestic violence recidivism, provided the catalyst for change in arrest policies.

The study called for the implementation of mandatory or preferred arrest policies with domestic violence suspects even though replicated studies failed to produce the same results Menard et al. That is, when responding officers cannot determine who the primary aggressor is, there is a tendency to arrest both members of the couple Menard et al. As a criminal justice educator and practitioner, the research supports the contention that the male will oftentimes erroneously be identified as the aggressor in most domestic violence incidents simply because they are male Hughes et al.

Consequently, women are less likely to be arrested as the perpetrators in these cases. An Ever-Growing Body of Research Until recently, the research had assumed a victimology approach when studying female involvement in domestic violence and a criminology approach when studying male involvement in domestic violence, thereby creating an interesting, yet frustrating dichotomy between perception and reality Straus, Despite the growing body of scholarly evidence indicating that females are capable of such abuse, the criminal justice system continues to ignore these issues Shuler, In the commonly referenced study, Hines, Brown, and Dunning described the experiences of callers to the first ever domestic abuse hotline for men, established in the U.

This study offered a preliminary understanding of the experiences of male victims. It is also advised that judges receive up-to-date training and education on male victims of domestic violence to ensure equitable action in the form of sentencing and treatment.

As society becomes more accepting that domestic violence is not exclusively limited to female victims, but can affect male victims in both heterosexual and homosexual relationships, agencies that currently serve female victims will likely expand their services to include male victims Wallace, About the Author : Professor Michael Pittaro has 25 years of criminal justice field and administrative experience working with juvenile and adult offenders with extensive histories of addiction as well as psychological and sexually deviant-related disorders in relation to criminal offending and victimization.

Some interesting comments made by Professor Pittaro though there seems to be a lack of information provided in his conclusions. For example report mentions callers from 1st ever Domestic Violence hotline for men.

There will however continue to be a significant imbalance between the number of male and female victims of Domestic Violence. In many areas around the world the emphasis has been, and continues to be support of victims. I have always maintained that to just support victims without taking steps to change the behaviour of the person who is offending be they male or female does nothing to reduce the level of Domestic Violence in society or address the enormous cost to the economy.

First of all, thank you for responding to my article. Unfortunately, I had to keep this particular article to 1, or less words. However, I plan to publish the entire article in the very near future to address the questions you posed along with additional information pertinent to this topic. In the study I cited, they were men in heterosexual relationships and the female was the aggressor.

I would definitely be interested in delving further into domestic violence within homosexual relationships because this is also an area ripe for evaluation.

Gender representations of female perpetrators of intimate partner violence

When men and women are violent in heterosexual relationships, they usually engage in different patterns of behavior, for different reasons, and with different consequences. The following chart summarizes the approximate percentage of men and women who perpetrate different sorts of IPV, estimated by Johnson from prior research. No parallel thing happens to men, Stark says, even to men with abusive partners.

Across U. Approximately 1 in 10 men in the U. Commonly reported IPV-related impacts among male victims were fear, concern for safety, and symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, among others. Survey data have found that men experience a high prevalence of intimate partner violence, sexual violence and stalking. Most first-time victimizations occur before the age 25, with many victims first experiencing violence before age

Systematic review of female perpetrators of intimate partner violence and their treatment

Gender symmetry in intimate partner violence IPV has come to light in research, stirring much controversy. Historically, there has been resistance toward re-conceptualizing the problem from a psychology-informed framework, rather than from functional sociological discourse. Issues in examining IPV, with consideration of typologies, male victimization, and female perpetration, are discussed. Reporting, outcomes, revictimization, and perceptions of male victims and female perpetrators are addressed. An argument is offered for increased focus on psychological science, including theory and data from clinical, couple, and family systems disciplines, in addressing partner violence. A framework is provided for integrated, effective, and accurate approaches to IPV in discourse, policy, and service. This is a preview of subscription content, log in to check access.

Domestic violence against men

Domestic abuse of women has been in the public eye for many years. Many studies have examined its nature and extent, shelters for abused women have been set up, and legislation and police charging policies have evolved in response to the growing appreciation of the extent of the problem. The extent of the comparable issue of domestic abuse of men is not as well known and understood by the general public. However, recent findings have become available that contribute to a better understanding of domestic or intimate partner abuse of men.

Over the past few decades, the causes of and intervention for intimate partner violence IPV have been approached and studied. Despite the myth that IPV is exclusively an issue in heterosexual relationships, many studies have revealed the existence of IPV among lesbian and gay couples, and its incidence is comparable to Turell, or higher than that among heterosexual couples Messinger, ; Kelley et al.

Differences between male and female perpetrated domestic violence are widely acknowledged. However, there is a lack of Australian data on the circumstances of female perpetrated violence. This study analysed police narratives of domestic violence incidents involving a female person of interest POI.

Intimate Partner Violence, Sexual Violence, and Stalking Among Men

The purpose of this paper is to understand the constructions of female-perpetrated intimate partner violence IPV among postgraduate PG students studying and preparing for a career in forensic psychology. Of particular interest was how female perpetrators of IPV within heterosexual relationships were constructed and subsequently positioned by students in terms of social and gender identity. Implications regarding future practice for graduates in relation to risk assessment and treatment interventions are discussed.

Domestic violence against men deals with domestic violence experienced by men in a domestic setting, such as in marriage or cohabitation. As with domestic violence against women , violence against men may constitute a crime , but laws vary between jurisdictions. Men who report domestic violence can face social stigma regarding their perceived lack of machismo and other denigrations of their masculinity. The relative prevalence of IPV against men to that of women is highly disputed between different studies, with some countries having no data at all. Some researchers believe the actual number of male victims may be greater than law enforcement statistics suggest due to the number of men who do not report their abuse. IPV against men is a controversial area of research, with terms such as gender symmetry , battered husband syndrome and bidirectional IPV provoking a great deal of debate.
