Domestic violence is a significant social problem with significant psychological and medical consequences for its victims and their children. In part because treatments for domestic violence are often not effective, and in part because of the hypothesized similarities between the problems of chronically aggressive men and chronically suicidal women (e.g., emotion dysregulation), a rationale for applying Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to domestic violence is provided. This new application of DBT, designed to treat aggression and violence in families, is described. Aggression assessment procedures and conceptualization issues are presented, along with a case to illustrate treatment principles and intervention strategies. Typically targeting men who batter their partners, this new application includes the four essential functions of DBT, including attending to client motivation, skill acquisition, skill generalization, and team/therapist consultation. In addition, a number of new treatment developments are presented to target reducing and eliminating aggression: validation and empathy skill training; a focus on reconditioning anger responses to be more normative (including identifying alternative emotions and their associated effective coping responses); skills training on accurate interpersonal emotional expression; and understanding the functions of aggression and teaching skills in how formerly aggressive partners can get relationship and self-management needs met skillfully. A brief overview of the other strategies and components of DBT, and how they are applied to treating domestic violence, is also provided. Particular attention is devoted to therapists maintaining a nonjudgmental stance by utilizing mindfulness practice and team consultation.
