Effective therapy with criminals has the power to significantly reduce violence in our communities, yet forensic populations can be volatile and especially intimidating to work with. These videos provide deep insights into one of society’s most intractable issues, and in opposition to the punitive approach to violence prevention, make a compelling case for treating violent offenders with human dignity and responding to violence with psychological treatment and education. It will likewise challenge the viewer to see the humanity within violent individuals and inspire new ways to think about how to reduce violence in our communities.

In Part One of The Voices of Violence Series, ten experts elucidate the root causes of violent behavior. They offer a probing look into the unsettling childhood experiences of violent offenders, examining the disturbed parent-child attachment styles, destructive thought processes, and distorted social perceptions that underlie violence. In addition to the expert commentary, riveting interviews with both incarcerated and rehabilitated offenders offer direct insight into the thinking that led to violent crimes.

Received an Honorable Mention at the Columbus Film Council Chris Awards.

  • Explain the connection between violent and self-destructive behavior

In Part Two of The Voices of Violence Series, ten experts examine the critical components of effective treatment programs for violent individuals by focusing on prison programs in California and the U.K. Beyond the creation of an environment of safety and respect, these therapists confront the patriarchal beliefs, social misperceptions, and destructive thoughts that precipitate violent responses to real or perceived threats.

Vignettes of actual therapy sessions, along with interviews with incarcerated men, display the remarkable insight these individuals can achieve through treatment. Their chilling accounts of violence will challenge the empathy of even seasoned therapists, yet many of their stories are ultimately redemptive, as they learn to make use of their violent pasts by working to prevent violence in their communities. This video demonstrates vividly that conventional assumptions about crime and punishment fail to endure close scrutiny.

From watching this video, you will be able to:

  • Understand the common social misperceptions that lead offenders to violent behavior
  • Describe the key elements of effective treatment for violence
  • Identify the specific skills necessary to work safely with violent individuals

I was so moved by ‘Voices in Violence.” Again and again, I recognized the desperate strategies for survival that I've seen in my child-protection, batterer's intervention, and victim advocacy work as the men described their responses to threats - real and perceived, current and recalled. Such an amazing picture of the power of compassion. I've also been widely recommending the films. - Peter Polland, Training and Outreach Director,
