THEME: Harrassment, Rape Investigations on College Campuses

This is a departure from our focus on intimate partner violence against men, but germane because the feminist ideology that permeates IPV programs affects college campuses in this area, as well.

When offender treatment is the focus, the results suggest that effectiveness could be enhanced by changing treatment programs to address assaults by both partners when applicable.

A 'one size fits all' treatment approach to IPV is not appropriate and conjoint treatment may have a place in the treatment of at least some couples. Best practices include couples treatment as part of a larger community response to IPV, careful screening of couples for inclusion in couples treatment, modification of typical conjoint approaches to promote safety and on-going assessment of safety with contingency plans for increased risk

Results suggest a need to re-examine how domestic violence offenders are sentenced as well as whether current models of domestic violence treatment are effective in preventing further violence.
