The work of facilitating domestic violence offenders’ groups goes beyond “curing” the errant behavior of a group of individuals. Male violence is socially produced. A restructuring of the social order is needed to make a real and meaningful change in society that will affect the individuals within it. As such, these therapy groups are concerned not only with teaching skills to abusive men, resocializing them, encouraging psychological insight, and helping them to reorganize their relationships; but also with shaping the institutions that encourage sexism and violence, and moving society at large to be less abusive, more cooperative, and more flexible.
