L. Kevin Hamberger, PhD - Professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin
Kevin is a Professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI. In 1982, a "perfect storm" of opportunity moved him to become involved in intimate partner violence. First, one of his first patients in the family practice center was a battered woman. Second, he was asked to guest facilitate a "batterers anonymous" group for an evening. Both experiences led to development of the first batterer intervention program in Southeastern Wisconsin. The dearth of research on IPV perpetrators and treatment at the time led to development of a long standing research program on characteristics of men who batter, the utility of such information for predicting treatment outcome, understanding perpetrators' motivations for using IPV and, more recently, the intersection of gender and IPV perpetration.
Because that first patient was referred in the context of a Family Medicine clinic, Kevin recognized from the referring physician's negative reaction the need to train healthcare providers about IPV, including how to ask patients about it and how to respond appropriately to help survivors. This led to research on prevalence of IPV in family medicine settings, survivor's voices about what they need from healthcare providers, development and evaluation of training curricula for health care providers and, more recently, the impact of implementing systems change to address IPV on screening rates by doctors and nurses, and on changes in violence and health indices in women survivors.
In addition to his clinical and scholarly work, Kevin held numerous leadership positions related to IPV, including president of the board of a women's shelter, member and co-chair of the Governor's Council on Domestic Abuse, chair of the STFM Group on Violence Education and member of the board of directors of the National Partnership to End Interpersonal Violence where he also co-chairs the Dissemination and Translation Action Team. In these various leadership capacities, Kevin has been involved with promulgating treatment standards and guidelines for batterer treatment providers, co-founded the Wisconsin Batterer Treatment Provider Association, chaired the first two of three STFM-sponsored national Violence Education Conferences. He is presently working with a group to develop an e-journal designed to increase the accessibility of violence research to clinicians and policy makers.
