Three months ago we posted a blog piece linking to an interview of David Eggins and Denise Knowles on the OnRecord channel, The DAPPs Don’t Work (Domestic Abuse Perpetrator Programmes).
I was pleased to learn that a follow-up interview has been published, CAFCASS, Respect and the failed DAPPs (video, 19:20). The video description (check the actual description for links):
David Eggins and Denise Knowles explained to us that the Domestic Abuse Perpetrator Progammes, commissioned by CAFCASS and accredited by Respect do not work. They have a 70% dropout rate and even those who complete the course don’t all pass.
Here we look at what CAFCASS and Respect have to say about their DAPPs.
We also look at what the originators of the DAPP approach to treatment (the Duluth model) have said about the programme they designed. In 1999, Ellen Spence acknowledged that they had been wrong to promote the ideological view that male domestic abuse was based on an assumption of power and control by men over women.
