Abstract

The reality of lesbian partner violence has been long under-recognized andmisunderstood. Treatment protocols based solely upon work with heterosexual batterers and victims are inadequate when working with lesbians. In fact,without recognizing the specific needs of lesbians, treatment may compoundrather than cure the problem. This article explores lesbian battering as aresponse to and reenactment of cultural oppression, internalized homophobia, and religious/psychological shame. The cycle of domestic violence can bethe acting out of the traumatization of homophobia/heterosexism, compounded by sexual and religious shaming. A theology of liberation and the psychology of healing from trauma are explored as critical ingredients to treatingvictims and perpetrators. (C) 2001 by The Haworth Press, Inc. All rights reserved.
