An ounce of prevention : A model for working with couples at-risk for battering.
Literature on preventing spousal battering before it starts is virtually non-existent.
This article describes a prevention of abuse program that targets couples at-risk for battering.
At-risk couples and the process of engaging them in couples counseling are described.
The prevention model is based on a Bowenian approach that focuses on partner differentiation and reducing emotionality and promoting rational thinking.
It is assumed that increasing differentiation decreases the risk of spousal battering.
The various techniques used to facilitate differentiation are presented as well as a case example illustrating a successful prevention of abuse experience.
