The “what works” approach to evidence based practice has emphasised the need for systematic reviews and meta-analyses to explore the effectiveness of correctional interventions; indeed, the most effective interventions and programmes incorporate the risk,
need, responsivity principles (Andrews & Bonta, 2010; Prendergast, Pearson, Podus, Hamilton, & Greenwell, 2013) and this that do not may have no impact or even increase domestic violence (Welsh & Rocque, 2014). In this chapter we will explore current approaches to Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) perpetrator programmes and contrast these with the empirical evidence in terms of treatment need and treatment efficacy.
