This presentation discusses the challenges and joys of working with male domestic violence offenders in a community context. A key focus is on the role of therapeutic group work with mandated participants and common themes in domestic violence offender programs. The discussion includes information on interventions and their rationale, and a reflection on walking the line between empathy and challenging hostile gender beliefs and behaviours, before concluding with the role of feminism and masculinity in working with domestic violence offenders.
