Edward W. Gondolf, EdD, MPH, is currently a research associate and former research director for the Mid-Atlantic Addiction Research and Training Institute (MARTI), based at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (USA). His most noted book Batterer Intervention Systems (2001) summarizes a seven-year evaluation of batterer intervention systems in four cities funded by the US Centers for Disease Control, and a related NIJ study using the longitudinal data to identify risk factors for re-assault. Under grants from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), he more recently evaluated the effectiveness of specialized counseling for African-American men, a study of case management for domestic violence offenders, and a 4-year evaluation of supplemental mental health treatment for batterer program participants.
Dr. Gondolf’s subsequent book, The Future of Batterer Programs: Reassessing Evidence-Based Practice (2012), addresses the debate over the research on batterer programs and the means to improving their effectiveness, and his most recent book, Gender-Based Perspectives on Batterer Programs: Program Leaders on History, Approach, Research, and Development (2015) compiles the experience and insights of 24 batterer program leaders on program effectiveness and direction. He has also authored over 150 academic journal articles and 11 books on domestic violence intervention and related topics.
