Question by witchtriumvirate: What is the “Batterer’s Education Program”? What science are thier methods based on?
Is the program self-justified by a vague theory (such as “The Duluth Model”), or is it a scam designed with the specific intent to increase the recidivism rate thus ensureing the promulgation of such programs in a thus far successful effort to harvest profits from the neediest of the needy? After all, being forced to watch “vignettes” of “perps” abuseing “victims”, over and over again for 24 to 36 weeks, 2 hours a night, once or twice a week, predictably has a tendency to reassure the abusers that domestic violence is a way of life, and repeated offenses mean only more classes (instead of jail). Exposure Therapy inceases recidivism. Period. What qualifications do the providers need? Are they required to display thier credentials like your doctor, lawyer, dentist, teacher, and veteraniarian has too? Who do the staff answer too? Do your tax dollars fund this scam? What about this radical idea I dreamed up: when someone hits another person, maybe they should go to jail.
