Abstract: Abstract Domestic violence is truly a complex issue in terms of defining it – no single definition can be found, in terms of understanding its causality ,some view it as a gender issue, others perceived it a socio-political issue, many consider it a criminal issue, and others treat it a psycho-social issue, in terms of its impact , its magnitude, effect and impact are far reaching and may last for a life time, in terms of its dynamics, its victims and perpetrators come from all demographic groups, and in terms of the effective intervention, they tend to focus on victimization when what could stop domestic violence is no other than the perpetrator. This study explores ways to better understand how and why gender matters pertaining to curricula approaches used to foster positive behavior change in dealing with domestic violence issues. The study explores gender similarities’ and differences in learning and pursues exploring any unique aspects to gender that might present itself as important when dealing with batterer intervention education and behavior change training curricula. Determining what works and building programs around these findings is of high relevance to help stop domestic violence.
