AbstractThis article examines the effectiveness of treatment groups for Chinese male batterers. A single group research design with pre-test and post-test was employed. Results showed that the level of physical assault and psychological aggression at post-test was lower than the level at pre-test. The findings, based on the reports of caseworkers, indicated that after the group intervention, 78.6% of the participating batterers stopped using violence against their female partners. The low dropout rate indicated successful engagement with the respondents. The study provides evidence to support the effectiveness of treatment groups for Chinese male batterers.
