In the latest installment of DadsDivorce Live, host Rick Ortiz, of DadsDivorce.com, visits with Dr. Emily Douglas, author of “Mending Broken Families.” Dr. Douglas is currently conducting a study on men’s experience with partner aggression.
Many studies over the past few decades have shown 25-50% of all victims of partner violence are men. Dr. Douglas’ current research project focuses on the mental health status and and experiences of male help-seekers of partner violence.
Dr. Douglas is an assistant professor in the social work department and master of social work program program at Bridgewater State College in Bridgewater, Massachusetts and founder and chair of the National Research Conference on Child and Family Programs and Policy.
She is also the co-author of the forthcoming book “The Primordial Violence: Corporal Punishment by Parents, Cognitive Development, and Crime” and editor of another forthcoming book, “Current Trends in Child and Family Policy” (Lexington Books).
