Filed under: General — mopardad @ 9:06 am Mon 10th November 2014

Hi all, I’m after links to or copies of recent DV studies showing the ratio of abuse inflicted by each sex, needed to prepare myself for any rebutal using the old studies showing its a man thing. I did have some but cant seem to locate them. Thanks.

  2. Hi Mopardad,
    It is not that older studies show men were more violent and recent studies show something different.
    The Dunedin study or ChCh study are now going back 20 to 30 years. They offer a fairly neutral approach. Most studies find what they were searching for.
    The very recent Glenn report indicates ethnicity is also a significant factor and assumes a gender bias given the sample they “chose” for their subjects. This whole area is very political.
    I am happy to share some good books for you to read if you write to me privately and explain more of your interest in this area.

  3. Thanks Allan, I am just familiarising myself with as much info as I can (within reason) before I tackle the MOJ.

    The world’s largest domestic violence research data base, 2,657 pages,
    with summaries of 1,700 peer-reviewed studies. This site has all the details from the research into 1700 peer reviewed studies.

    I went to a local DV ‘information’ evening the other day. Sadly the agencies still seem happy to push the Duluuth Model as the way to tackle all domestic violence. In a chat after with the police rep for DV in the region he did admit that the duluuth model was only relevant to around 1 in 20 of their call outs.
    When I asked what resources were available for situations where both parties were violent there was a bit of ‘twítchiness’ with the responder defaulting to the ‘women only retaliating or acting in self defence’ mode.

  5. This article will help you articulate the types of DV that exist, not just the feminist interpretation.

    It is no longer scientifically or ethically acceptable
    to speak of domestic violence without specifying,
    loudly and clearly, the type of violence to which
    we refer (Johnson 2005, p. 1126).

    good luck

  8. Toward an Understanding of the Determinants of Anger
    Leonard Berkowitz and Eddie Harmon-Jones
    University of Wisconsin-Madison

    Research bearing on several popular conceptions of the major determinants of
    anger arousal indicates that the particular appraisals often identified as causes of
    anger frequently only serve to affect the intensity of the anger that is generated.
    Research into effects of physical pain or other physically unpleasant conditions or
    involving social stresses suggests that decidedly aversive conditions are a major
    spur to anger. Experiments are also reviewed showing that anger-related muscular
    movements can also lead to anger-related feelings, memories, cognitions, and autonomic
    responses. Alternative explanations for the findings are discussed. The
    authors urge emotion theorists to widen their methodology and analyses so that they
    give careful, detailed attention to the many different factors that can influence

  9. Arrested Female Offenders In Auckland City
    April – September 2008
    Report written by:
    Deborah Mackenzie
    Preventing Violence in the Home
    April 2009

    Another paper from Auckland Women’s Centre website.

    AWC are active and regular in making submissions on Government invitations for submissions.

    By comparison, it appears that most submissions aimed at protecting men’s interests, have been prepared and submitted by isolated individuals. By not working in larger groups, we do lose a huge amount of self-protective influence. The lesson, is that we do need to persuade men to be more politically active and cooperative.
