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

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 ‘twÃƒÂtchiness’ with the responder defaulting to the ‘women only retaliating or acting in self defence’ mode.
This article will help you articulate the types of DV that exist, not just the feminist interpretation.

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

Preventing Violence in the Home
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.
