LILA, Marisol et al. A Research, Training and Intervention Experience at University of Valencia with Men Convicted of Violence Against Women: Programa Contexto. Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2010, vol.19, n.2, pp.167-179. ISSN 1132-0559.
In Spain, after the coming into force of Organic Law 1/2004 (Integral Protection Measures against Gender Violence) intervention programs for perpetrators of domestic violence have become necessary for the application of conditional suspended sentences in cases of gender violence. The aim of this paper is to present the work done in the Programa Contexto (University of Valencia) in the field of research, training and intervention in those convicted of domestic violence. Firstly, we describe the main characteristics and guidelines for intervention in the program, in conjunction with its structure and different phases. Secondly, the training process provided for volunteers on the program is described, and the training activities developed by the team members. Finally, we present the main lines of research that are guiding the work of the team that is part of Programa Contexto and the preliminary results.
