Abstract

Re-offending rates of perpetrators of domestic violence are high (Hester et al., 2006) and there is a need for perpetrator programmes to reduce victimisation. There is no clear evidence for the effectiveness of existing programmes (Bowen, Gilchrist, & Beech, 2005; Herman, Rotunda, Williamson, & Vodanovich, 2014; Smedslund et al.,, 2011). A new perpetrator programme based on solution focused brief therapy has been developed (Bowen, 2013), and whilst in its infancy it has received positive feedback from services and clients (International Innovation, 2016). Solution Focused Brief Therapy has been found to be effective in the reduction of aggression and criminal behaviours (Gingerich & Peterson, 2013), and has been effectively used with people with a learning disability (Smith, 2005). This case study will explore the effectiveness of the new perpetrator programme with someone with a learning disability on their attitudes towards domestic violence and abuse as well as self-esteem.
