Psychotherapy for treatment-resistant male batterers: An investigation of processes related to change.
Colin Bradley King
Written in English
The current study reports on the efficacy of a specialized batter program in advancing men"s readiness to change and engaging men to remain in treatment. Treatment-resistant batterer clients were identified at intake and randomly assigned to standard treatment or process-oriented intervention. Programming in the process-oriented intervention incorporated motivational interviewing strategies for enhancing client motivation and strengthening the client-facilitator relationship. Results indicated mixed support for the utility of the intervention in improving clients" readiness for change. Differences in motivation, but not working alliance scores, were observed between program formats. Support for the process-oriented format was found in treatment completion rates. Seventy-one percent of treatment-resistant clients in the process-oriented intervention completed treatment compared to 42% of clients in standard programming. Examination of therapy processes in the program formats revealed significant variability across group sessions in the process-oriented group. Research and clinical implications are discussed in the context of the current findings.
