Directions

Psychologists and sociologists have developed several theories that explain the causes and dynamics of intimate partner and family violence so that we can protect victims, help change abusers and yet hold them accountable for their actions. This forum asks you to take the role of either a psychologist or a sociologist and apply a theory from the assigned discipline to the case of Yeardley Love. Read the Wikipedia page on the Murder of Yeardley Love (Links to an external site.).

For your initial post, read about the following theories of domestic violence. Select two of the following theories and indicate how you think each one would explain Yeardley Love’s murder.
