This webinar is hosted by the Battered Women's Justice Project and is open to the public. 


This webinar will focus on the challenges posed to clinicians in working with victims of violence. Dr. Burge will present the findings of their research.  The partner violence literature describes three dominant models of dynamics of partner aggression: Cycle of violence, family systems theory, and Duluth model (power and control wheel). Complexity science describes three patterns of system dynamics: Periodic, chaotic, and random. Are these parallel patterns? In this analysis, investigators calculated dynamic patterns (periodic, chaotic, and random) using 84 daily reports of male-to-female aggression and assessed the “fit” between time-series-derived patterns of male partners’ violent behaviors and literature-based models of violence dynamics.
