Domestic Violence Council Annual Conference - "Why Does He Do That?" Exploring the Process of Change
May 1st, 2014
9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Even though for the last 40 years, the battered women’s movement has fought to find safety for victims and their children while attempting to shine a light on the origins of violence, the question “Why doesn’t she leave?” continues. Instead, the question needs to be “Why does he do that and how can we as the public, friends and family, and service providers hold offenders accountable?”
The Domestic Violence Council’s first annual conference, “Why Does He Do That?”: Exploring the Process of Change, will start there. The conference, featuring keynote speaker Lundy Bancroft, a nationally known author, workshop leader, and consultant on domestic abuse will further educate our community on offender behavior and accountability, and interventions for families experiencing domestic violence. Join us for informative lectures, panels, and discussions among professionals in our community who work with offenders.
Lundy Bancroft has over twenty years of experience specializing in interventions for abusive men and their families. He has authored four books in the field, including the country's best-selling book on domestic violence, Why Does He Do That? and the national prizewinner The Batterer as Parent. Lundy is a former Co-Director of Emerge, the nation’s first counseling program for men who batter, and was involved in over 2000 cases as counselor and clinical supervisor. He has also served extensively as a custody evaluator, child abuse investigator, and expert witness. Lundy appears across the United States as a presenter for court personnel, child protective workers, therapists, law enforcement officials, and other audiences. He is currently working on a play about battered women's experiences with the child custody system, called "Forbidden to Protect".
