The other tabs include raw data and listings ordered by size. Holtzworth-Munroe and colleagues (1995) offer that couples therapy would offer several benefits over individual treatment, including that couples therapy: gives the therapist a more accurate picture of the violence, since it is not based solely on the abuser's report, which is likely to be minimized allows for the same techniques and information to be given to both partners, including education about domestic violence and personal responsibility for one's actions and safety, as well as attention to warning signs that the abuser is at risk to lose control over his anger Prerequisites for potentially successful couples treatment would include: the violence only happened once, perhaps twice (separated by a long interval) the batterer is willing to comply with "safety check-ins" and reports by the victim, which typically should be conducted without the batterer present a clear set of terms under which therapy would be ended (such as a "relapse" into any violence, or the use of manipulative efforts to control) In these kinds of cases, there are a few basic procedures that would help: a "no violence" contract that specifically states there is to be no violence between the parties, and that should they become violent, they must report this to the therapist within one day the batterer may be required to begin work on his own of some kind (individual therapy, anger management classes, group therapy, etc...) to begin to address his anger problems, perhaps including attention to physiological signs, relaxation therapy, etc... there is a safety plan in place for the victim, which spells out under what circumstances he will leave the home; the therapist should meet individually with him to spell out a safe place to go (e.g., a friend or family member who knows the relationship has been violent), and this place should remain secret from the batterer there is a safety plan for the batterer, which spells out triggers or physiological signs he can use to warn himself that he is loosing control of his temper, "calming activities" he can engage in to soothe his anger, and a contact person he can go to for support and honest feedback who is aware of the violence in the relationship a "no threats" contract that specifically states neither partner will make threats to end the relationship; this would not preclude leaving the home, but it would stipulate that any decision to leave would be reported at a therapy session a "no discussion" list of topics; these would include "crazy buttons" or issues that are too volatile for the couple to discuss outside of session, and an agreement for both partners not to discuss these outside of session, and what to do if the other brings up these issues Of note, work with domestic violence cases is never easy.
