Abstract
Based on direct clinical work towards the completion of a master's degree, this practicum report focuses on using conjoint sessions as a primary intervention method for treating couples who have experienced violence within their relationship. A co-therapy team is used. Paramount influential factors are discussed including the use of systems theory, a feminist critique of this approach, etiological factors of violence, family of origin issues and other intervention themes. Specific case examples are cited. The writer concludes that for certain types of clients this treatment plan can be quite effective.
