Controversial issues in partner violence

Published by Editor at 2:49 pm under Home Page, University News

A conference on “Controversial Issues in Understanding and Intervening in Partner Violence” is being held at the University of Haifa on October 27. The conference brings together, for the first time, a unique and outstanding panel of scholars from the USA, Canada and Israel, with diverse perceptions of the issues at hand. The participants will focus on and explore controversies around theory and intervention in partner violence.

Intimate partner violence, mostly known as “domestic violence”, is recognized as a social problem and is considered deviant behavior for almost four decades. As social researchers and professionals continuously address the nature of the phenomenon and try to shape the most beneficial intervention programs, major controversies still exist in the field.

Experts participating in the conference include feminist scholars, such as Prof. Michael Johnson of Penn State University, whose work over the years has shaped the feminist approach of the matter; and family violence experts, such as Prof. Murray Straus of the University of New Hampshire, whose work in the 1970s and 1980s launched much controversy, and who is considered by many feminist researchers and therapists as the world leader in the field of family violence.

This is the first time that such an extensive gathering of experts from both sides of the fence is convening and discussing the controversial topic of partner violence in order to outline future action in the field. It is a rare opportunity for experts in the field to be exposed to the most up-to-date perspectives in theory, research and practice relating to partner violence.

The conference is organized by the University of Haifa’s Center for the Study of Society and School of Social work; Association of Social Service Heads for Arab Communities; and the U.S. Embassy.

Topics being discussed include:
• “To What Extent Does Gender Symmetry and Mutuality Characterize Clinical-Level Partner Violence?” - Prof. Murray Straus, University of New Hampshire

• “Gender and Types of Intimate Partner Violence: A Response to the Anti-feminist Critique” - Prof. Michael Johnson, Penn State University

• “Controversies in Divorce Mediation and Intimate Partner Violence” - Prof. Amy Holtzworth-Munroe, Indiana University

• “The Debate Over Batterer Program Effectiveness” - Prof. Edward Gondolf, Indiana University of Pennsylvania
October 27, 2010,  Hecht Auditorium, University of Haifa.

The conference will be in English (with simultaneous Hebrew translation) and is open to the public.
