Description - Solution-Focused Treatment of Domestic Violence Offenders by Mo Yee Lee

Every 15 seconds someone commits a crime of domestic violence in the United States and most violators will be court-mandated to receive group treatment. Outcome studies of traditional treatment programmes (those with confrontational or educational approaches) indicate high rates of dropping out and low effectiveness, lending urgency to the need to find an alternative method. This volume describes a cutting-edge treatment approach that creates effective, positive changes in domestic violence offenders. Solution-focused therapy concentrates on holding offenders accountable and responsible for building solutions, rather than emphasizing their problems and deficits. By focusing on "solution-talk" instead of "problem-talk", clients are assisted in developing useful goals and solution behaviours that are then amplified, supported and reinforced through a solution-building process.
