Can perpetrators of domestic violence change?

This ABC radio program (Background Briefing) presents the voices of men recognising emotional, psychological and financial tactics they have used to control their partners.  Partners also speak of how they experienced this abuse.  The discussion helps to describe and pull apart themes of power and control, how it’s used and how it impacts victims.  One of the primary points made is that it can take both victims and perpetrators many years to recognise the abuse, and many more years to change.  Click here to listen.
