Abstract

This article explores the experiences of individuals who are engaged in work with men who are violent, focusing in particular on the differential, gendered impacts of this area of practice. Violence intervention is widely recognised as work that is difficult, demanding and, frequently, confronting. It is less often recognised that such work is not only experienced differently by men and women, but significantly, that it may carry a much greater weight, with impacts that are both broader and more profound, for the women working in this area. Building upon an understanding of the gendered nature of work and the workplace, this research reveals the distinctively gendered nature and impact of work with men who are violent, highlighting the complex interplay of gendered individuals, in the gendered workplace, in relation to a specifically gendered activity, that of men's violence.
