Abusers Believe Abuse is More Prevalent

21 03 2010

I’ll bet most of you already knew that. Men who engage in domestic violence consistently believe that such abuse is more common than it really is.  A new study out of the University of Washington quantifies how prevalent this is; you can read a summary printed by UWeek and find the original article published in the journal Violence Against Women (vol 16(4), pp 370-84, 2010).  Due to copyright we cannot post the PDF, however if you cannot locate the article in a library near you please feel free to contact SafetyNet.
