Intimate Partner Domestic Violence
Presenter: Nancy Halverson
Broadcast Date: 06/30/2004

As the women’s movement gained force in the 1970s attention began to be focused on domestic violence as a social and justice system problem. Initially emphasis was placed on arrest and prosecution of offenders, but increasingly, offenders are being supervised in community corrections. In the 1980s some community corrections agencies began developing protocols for supervising domestic violence offenders, but others have not yet recognized the special challenges these offenders present. This presentation will discuss the prevalence, dynamics, and myths of domestic violence; the characteristics, treatment, and strategies for supervision of offenders; and victim issues.
