A Handbook for Men ~ Used by counselors and therapists across the country...especially for the court-ordered perpetrator
Starting in the early 80's, Learning to Live Without Violence set the standard for the treatment of batterers. Today, there are more than 800,000 copies in print. Now, the updated bestselling manual includes exercises to enhance the curriculum for longer-term counseling and educational programs.
The authors write: "The purpose of this new chapter is to suggest ways for you to continue to make positive changes in your behavior; to assess which areas need further attention; and to discuss areas where you might do some 'advanced training' in violence prevention, and especially in anger management".
The updated message in this book that has saved so many women's lives since it was first published in 1982 makes it "must" reading for every man, woman and therapist involved in stopping domestic violence! Men can learn to live without being violent and Sonkin and Durphey help them do it!"
