Some of the results of these studies and quotes from some of the women are included throughout the book. Either with or without the use of the VIGOR assessment tool, the VIGOR framework can provide a conceptual tool for understanding how victimized women cope with battering. C O N C L U S IO N Battering is a complex problem and we need more sophisticated and nuanced approaches to coping with it. Our existing efforts place too much emphasis on the crisis response and not enough on systematic planning to minimize all types of risks.

It seems likely that some women out there somewhere have done things like these, because it is a big planet and a lot of bizarre things happen. But I am confident there is no “gender parity” in these behaviors. Based on my clinical experience, good guesses about which of the threats discussed in this book might be 36 B AT T E R E D W O M E N ’ S P R O T E C T I V E S T R AT E G I E S relatively common among female perpetrators are the threat of suicide and the threat or act of destroying a partner’s valuables (such as damaging a partner’s car).

The vast majority of alcoholics, drug addicts, and criminals will never commit a murder. On the other hand, some people who do commit murder have none of these problems. Taken together, these factors mean domestic violence homicides are unlikely to ever be predicted accurately (Hamby & Cook, 2011). The negative effects of inaccurate prediction include making some women more fearful than they need to be and some women less fearful than they need to be. Why is this bad? Because inaccurate risk assessment turns into poor safety planning and risk management.
