Website for violent men: 

As many men communicate more easily with computers than with their wives, a website could be the media to

• raise awareness for all forms of abuse,

• give men an idea of the dangers of domestic violence

• encourage them to seek professional help for themselves or for their clients. informs

• violent men

• social service employees, police, lawyers, medical staff

• schools and youth groups

• students of social work


• popular myths about the causes of male violence;

• all forms of violence in partnerships;

• the dangers of the ”spiral of violence”;

• how training groups specialising in domestic violence work with perpetrators;

• groups in their region, including addresses, portraits of the men working there as well as the group`s concept;

• the experiences of participants in the training courses, who tell what and how they learn.

This is invaluable information, as in Germany at present there is a lack of trained professionals who deal with violent men.

Financial support and assistance

was provided by the Federal Ministry for Family, Senior Citizens and Women and the Ministry of Social and Family Affairs of Brandenburg, in cooperation with the department of Social Sciences of the University of Applied Sciences in Erfurt
