FATHERS LOBBY TO RELEASE ITS OWN REPORT ON FAMILY VIOLENCE
Co-author Hans Laven of a new report ‘ THE OTHER SIDE OF PARTNER VIOLENCE: A counterbalancing review of international and New Zealand reports on Intimate Partner Violence ‘ said today that their report would identify serious flaws evident in the recently issued Glenn, Tolmie Death Review and Herbert reports that supported their own erroneous beliefs that it was usually the male that was the perpetrator of family violence and the female was invariably the victim. These findings were not supported by neglected New Zealand and international studies which are ignored by the recent reports and women’s lobby groups.
“Our review reveals that statistical data has been manipulated and anti-male gender bias is a strong theme running through these reports”, claimed Mr Laven.
The report is to be released to the media and other stake holders on Wednesday 26th November and is bound to reignite debate on the true causes of family violence.
The authors of this report are Craig Jackson (educational consultant), Hans Laven (registered clinical psychologist) and Dr Viv Roberts (registered medical practitioner).
