Legal Domestic Abuse — Is the Family Court System Supposed to Be Just and Fair?

Friday, October 30th, 2009

Domestic Violence Awareness: What Every Battered Woman Wishes She Knew When She Was a Young College Woman

Donell Edwards interviewing Dr. Jeanne King, Ph.D.

The College World Reporter Donell Edwards interviews domestic abuse consulting expert Dr. Jeanne King, Ph.D. to help educate young college women about domestic violence.

DONELL EDWARDS: Based on clinical studies, empirical data, and other research, what are the causes of domestic abuse, and for the sake of this interview, we are speaking specifically about men physically abusing women?

Dr. Jeanne King: Causes are a mystery, or shall I say a topic of diverse theories. Some experts claim that battering is learned behavior; others will tell you it is a function of one’s personality and predisposition. Then, there are those who look to biochemical factors in the brain that are associated with aggression. Most evidence, however, supports that battering is learned.

Battered Women – When Mature Women Leave Abusive Relationships

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

Dr. Jeanne King, Ph.D.

“Dr. King, speak to how it is for the mature woman in an abusive relationship and how it is for her when she leaves,” writes a reader.

My knee jerk response to this request was, “the dynamics are the same.” Battering is battering is battering. An abuse dynamic that is long standing or discovered later in life resembles an abuse dynamic earlier in life.
